Huntington Quilters are excited to host Sara Lawson of SewSweetness. Sara has several published books and many bag/purse patterns. 

Sara started designing free bag sewing patterns for Pellon Projects, in late 2011. They include detailed instructions and step-by-step photos. Her book, Big-City Bags, was published by Martingale on November 5, 2013. She also produces pdf and paper sewing patterns. In 2012 Sara wrote 26 bag patterns and, in 2013  wrote 22 bag patterns.  This year, she is working on her second book.  

Sara will be doing an Interfacing Lecture and Trunk show at the November 3rd meeting.  She will provide one interfacing charm pack (11 interfacings) for each person attending-as supplies last, as well as a handout.  You can learn more about Sara on her website, Sew Sweetness.

You are welcome to bring a guest to this meeting.  However, guests will be asked to pay a $10 fee to attend this meeting.  If you have not yet paid your membership dues, you would also be asked to pay this fee.
