A sew along lingerie group was created in Sep 2019. The Groups Leaders are Terry and Sandi. Dates of the next meeting are determined by those attending the current meeting. Projects, patterns, fabrics and notions are determined by the individual members who turn to each other for support as they learn together.
We are currently meeting over Zoom.

Sep 24: Active Wear Discussion
Nov 26: Holiday- no meeting
Jan 28: Check with Leader
We met on July 30th and had 6 people attend. Terry, Paulette and Debbie told us about what they learned from attending classes at the Great Bra Sewing Bee hosted by Bra Builders. Jennifer Fairbanks, of Porcelynne Lingerie Supplies, Patterns and Books in St Petes, was one of the instructors. We are looking forward to when Covid is over so we can invite her down to bring us fabrics and samples that we can touch.
Sandi attended a July Zoom meeting held by the Boston Chapter and told us about their member, Kim Larcom who spoke to them on active wear, swim suits and bras.
We decided to broaden our sewing beyond bra making as some members are interested in active wear and swimwear so we are renaming our group to SIG Lingerie and Activewear in the hopes that more people will be interested in attending and share things in addition to bras.
We would like to meet on a regular basis every 2 months. Members agreed on the 4th Thursday. So our next meeting will be on Sept 24 at 1:30. We will not meet in Nov as that falls on Thanksgiving. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see more faces in September!
