I am honored and humbled to have been asked to be the keynote speaker for ASG’s national conference in LA this week. I fly out tomorrow. My speech has been done for a few weeks but each day I tweak it. I can’t think of a more receptive audience than a roomful of community minded sewists!
My biggest task has been to build a structure in my mind for how ASG chapters can collaborate with The Sewing Machine Project. I’ve “put it out there” on blog sites and the feeling I get back is that people would most like to volunteer as teachers. So I’m going with that. Little by little, the pieces of this new nationwide initiative are falling into place. I’m looking forward to sharing what I know so far with the audience on Friday. Then, from there, I look forward to conversations, brainstorming and filling in the missing pieces.
I love how this project works. We begin tossing around an idea and then the flow begins. We’re in the flow now and I can’t wait to share this excitement in Los Angeles.
