First DC Threads 2013 kick-off lounge

Hi Everyone. After being absent for at least 18 months, I was able to go to the first sewing lounge of the year--yesterday (Saturday, 1/11). They have several rooms, but used two rooms: one for beginners and/or first time sewers, and a larger room for others.

 How sweet it is!
 MY GIRL!! Really! I met this pretty young lady nearly 4 years ago! A very kind soul indeed! :-)
As you can see, we all had a good time. The first session was well attended. For more information, visit the lounge at Here's the group link on face book:
