When you log into our monthly Wednesday Programs, we will not record your faces. The only recording will be of those being Interviewed and the content being shown to you. During the program, you can use the Chat room to "talk" to each other and ask questions about what you are seeing. Everyone's mics will remain muted during the portion that is being broadcasted.



Sandi will be assisting with Hosting and Helping our Neighborhood Groups use Zoom. Please contact her to schedule a meeting at time convenient to you.

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!
