THANKS for letting us sew...
Opening your doors to our Neighborhood Group meetings means A LOT to us!
South Manatee Library in Bradenton
What is an NG? Its a Neighborhood Group!
We are real people meeting in real buildings to sew real things. And we have a blast. So take a moment to step away from the world of virtual reality and mosey on down to your nearest NG. Better yet, bring a friend with you!
