The year is too long to be apart from our fellow makers! See the FLAIR facebook events listing for details.
March 10, 2019--Sunday Sewing at Song. 1-5pm, Song common house, Ecovillage. Make space for sewing! We'll gather and work on old projects or start new ones. Fresh spring pillowcases? Why not! There will be no formal instruction but perhaps together we can muddle through!

April 6, 2019--Improv Quilting Round Robin! 10am-4pm at the Tompkins County Public Library's Makerspace. Bring a sewing machine and some quilting cotton and try your hand at improv quilting. We'll be starting a piece, then passing it around the room for others to add to it. A really fun way to play with color! Free! Register online at the TCPL website. https://www.tcpl.org/events/flair-improv-quilting-round-robin?fbclid=IwAR2jkq1vJkWauoK6uyZEleAgdmLhONWDmAj9-8VMHRP3-UmjbP0jlGL0osM
