Our lovely Patterns Consultant Lauren who you might have already had the pleasure of corresponding or working with over zoom, or via emails has created a new FS Sewing Group over on Facebook- a fun place to share your love of sewing (and its corresponding frustrations) with fellow seamstresses all over the world. A space of inspiration and resolution, a nurturing way to feel seen and heard. Lauren will be the moderator and first point of contact anything Sewing Group related, so if you have any questions, ideas, suggestions, (esp if you are already part of a sewing community, knitting circle, quilt lover get together or any other sew based bonding endeveur) please give her a shout in the comments below.
The pandemic has slowly but surely changed the way we interact with one another for the present moment at least (let’s hope it changes), more cautious, less sure, more hesitant, less together, more anxieties, less hugs, more separate, more lonely.
Over the last two years, digital communities have largely replaced IRL events, which is a sad and worrying reality, but as it turns out, you can have meaningful, fullfiling and awe-inspiring interactions with people who share your passion, who have similar visions, who geek out on learning new techniques just like you, who get excited about their growing fabric stash and finding solutions to make way for bigger steps in life. It is really quite rewarding to share something you love with others who are on that same wave.
If this resonates with you, please join our wonderful new community space. Also, please feel free to introduce yourselves in the comments below.
