Sew Day Coordinator

In the blog's continuing effort to inform the membership about what it takes to put on meetings and events, our Sew Day Coordinator, Diana, has this to say:

: Diana L.

Position: Sew Day Coordinator

Job: Plan Group Sewing events.  This includes sew-days and the post-meeting sew-cials.

Hopes: I'm hoping to have monthly sewing events. I'm shooting for a varied schedule to accommodate people's needs (Saturdays, Sundays and Friday evenings).  Once the ball is rolling for these events, I might plan activities or challenges for some of these events, such as technique demonstrations and instruction, or challenges to make something in a short period of time. We might also try to run a charity-only sewing event, where our group primarily focuses on charity sewing for the day.

Successes:  One Sew Day in January, two more already booked (March 23 5-11pm and April 21 10am-10pm).

Information: I plan to document a list of potential host locations for group sewing events, along with the contact information and costs involved.  I also plan to list out the "best practices" (once we figure these out) for bringing shared items such as irons, ironing boards/mats, design walls and snacks.

If you have ideas for Diana for locations or anything, leave a comment or contact Diana at a meeting. If you can demonstrate or bring something for an upcoming sew-cial, see Diana as well.
