Here’s another one of the special projects I’ve been working on lately: creating an English-speaking club in my area! I opted to found the club under the BurdaStyle Sewing Clubs banner as it offers not only visibility, but also credibility and a whole array of resources, thanks to the thriving online community that is BurdaStyle.
The Leiden BurdaStyle Sewing Club is for anyone who loves sewing and making their own creations, whether you are a beginner or want to hone specific skills. The emphasis will be on creating stylish clothes, and so we use the resources of the BurdaStyle website and magazines for patterns, ideas, themes and communication. We will meet twice monthly, in a friendly environment to chat, sew, discuss projects and share skills. We hope to bring in professionals sometimes to help with special issues, and welcome contributions from our members.
If you are living in the Leiden area in the Netherlands and would like to join our club, you can drop me a note using the contact form. You can also find us on Facebook. Our first meeting will be held on February 2nd, at 8 p.m. I hope to see you there!
