This year's 4-H Sewing Camp was our 9th summer of partnership with 4-H. We had fun teaching and the kids had fun learning how to sew.

Our arms are wrapped in love around our sewing sister and Treasurer, Paulette. Her husband Terry, died of heart problems on May 16, 2018. His services were on Sunday, May 27 from 2-4pm at the Manasota Memorial Park and Home. His obituary is posted online

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!
