Sew Aiken has been asked to share meeting space during the next meeting on September 5th. Since projects for that day don't require sewing machines please leave yours at home, we just won't have the room.

There will be a lot of handouts this time in recognition of National Sewing Month. This meeting will be a good time to share sewing tips and techniques, future projects, and design ideas.
A BIG welcome to our newest possible members Kenna and Faith! Hope to see you at our next meeting!

Since it was only Savana, Alexis, and I (Athena) we didn't do any Sew Aiken project... Continue reading...
BurdaStyle is a great site to prowl for inspiration and free patterns. I (Athena) am a sucker for a patternless pattern and they have members posting them all the time. Like this awesome top/dress. And they have a sewpedia.
I would like to have a page on our site listing our favorite online and brick stores, s... Continue reading...
First meeting of the Sew Aiken Club will be June 20th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Aiken County Public Library meeting room.
Patently waiting for the packet, approval, and listing from BurdaStyle. Lots of ideas for future projects. Might have to get started on that page right away. Definitely have two members to date, myself (Athena) and my daughter. LOL Agenda for the first meeting will be posted when I make one soon. Thanks for visiting, leave a comment, and come sew with us!
