The ASG Exhibit Hall Preview Night

Hello A-Team:

Hope you all had a terrific Mother’s Day !!!!!

The Classroom: The final projects in the tailoring and apparel construction classes keeps going forward. Everyone is busy working on their assignments. Those that are finished with their shirts and pants, are going to help with a community service project for an orphanage in Honduras. Thank you, Christina, for the opportunity to help with this project. We will be making 2 sizes of children’s skirts. Donations welcome !!!!

Graduation is around the corner. Those of you, who are graduating, need to see a counselor to ensure you are walking on May 29th, at the Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park.

Mesa’s Fashion Show was last Friday night. I can’t wait to hear the stories from the event !!!!

The California State Button Society is holding its Annual Button Show and Sale on Saturday, May 30 and 31st, at the Town and Country Hotel and Convention Center. 500 Hotel Circle North. Admission is free to the Button Show. This is also the same weekend as Central Sewing’s Anita Goodesign Machine Embroidery Event. I am sure there are still tickets for this event available. Call Central. 619-447-3244. There is a cost to the Machine Embroidery event. BUT…if you are interested in learning how to do this, the return is well worth the cost !!!!! I will be at the Anita Goodesign Event !!!!!

The details for the ASG Exhibit Hall Preview Night at the Town and Country Hotel and Convention Center. 500 Hotel Circle North: If you are under 65 the cost is $5. For seniors the cost is $2 This will get you into the exhibit hall every time it is open, all weekend long. Parking is $10, whether you stay for 2 hours or 8 hours. Don’t park in Fashion Valley or the Trolley Center. They tow cars there. I spoke to the Dean. There is a way, I can collect the exhibit hall fee and get you your ticket. The ASG would like us to purchase the tickets all in one group. This would make it easier for them. I will need a personal check (with your name and address printed on it) addressed to the American Sewing Guild. I will be collecting the checks for the tickets the first 2 weeks in June. I can NOT get tickets after that. I cannot do any refunds. When I get the tickets in the mail, I will post this, on the blog. You can stop by my classroom, Monday through Thursday, from 5 to 9 pm to pickup your ticket. Make your check out to the American Sewing Guild. Check out the ASG website for more details. http://www.asg.org/html/conference.html If you miss the cut off, you can fill out a registration form and send it in, with your check. OR….you can stand in line at the door to pay your fee and get in. Hope to see you all there, on Preview Night, Thursday, July 16th. What Fun !!!!!

See you all in class !!!!
