    Thanks to the ten members who attended the planning meeting on Wednesday night!  There was a great discussion and the group came up with some exciting plans.  It was agreed to have both fiction and nonfiction titles, including biographies and memoirs.  Look ahead to reading more detail in the chapter’s April newsletter and updates added to the Book Club tab on the Members site on the chapter website and on our Facebook page.

    Already interested?  Add Wednesday, April 17 in the evening to your calendar!

    Danielle, could you add the general area where you live?  This could help with figuring out if those of us seeing this post live in your general area.  Also, are you trying to get there for the Vendors area which opens at 9:30am or in time for a specific class?

    Here’s another post added to the Chapter’s private Facebook group page:

    “I take a photo of the pattern back and front and put it into a folder in my OneDrive account. I can access it from any device, and don’t have to type in details. I don’t do this for all patterns (although I could!), just the ones I’m currently fabric shopping for.”

    Am adding more information here. This is a description of a class next week at Sew Expo in Puyallup.  Maybe someone is taking this class and can share about it?   I’ll also add a short post to the ASG closed Facebook group post there too.

    Hi.  Here is the sharing on the topic from the same post added to the chapter’ closed Facebook group:

    Sewing Patterns app
    “I paid for the full version vs Sewing Patterns Lite”
    search your phone’s App store to find it

    AirTable
    “There are other databases out there, but this is the one I’ve used. I track all my fabric, the content ,yardage And what pattern I plan to use it with. Another table is for patterns, which includes the pictures with the amount and types of fabric required. The two tables can be linked together. The database is easy to use.”

    Stash Hub has a phone app.  Also heard good things about Backstitch, but the app is still in Beta and you need a beta invite to use it right now.”

    “I use Trello and I add screenshots of the pertinent pages of the pattern.”

    “Someone (thank you) at Zoom group’s 2/10 meeting listed a YouTube video which I watched.  The creator uses Trello and it looks pretty great.  She uses it for both patterns, including photos, line drawings, measurements & fabric requirements, as well as her fabrics. I may look into using it myself.”

    “The two other more popular databases people use are Trello and Excel.  They are both used more than AirTable.  I should look into Trello because it is so popular and I don’t know much about it.”

    Luv the practical pockets and stylish seam in the middle of each front side!  And the placement of the snap “buttons” on the edge finishing too.

    Those at yesterday’s Zoom group meeting chatted about the upcoming Sew Expo.  Lorie shared that Saturday’s  Mar 2’s American Sewing Guild Style Show is from 11:30am to 12:15pm on the Free Stage in the ShowPlex building.  Cathy and Carolyn, several of us will be cheering you both on!
