There are many of us who come together to learn techniques and get inspired by what we learn at retreats and workshops. From Sewing Expos to sewing circles that meet in homes, I’d like to read about what you and threads readers think about what makes for a great learning/sharing experience. Maybe each issue could feature a sewing circle or creative retreat in hopes of inspiring like minded sewers to grow one for themselves. This forum could even help to get like minds together on a physical plane. The political world is now as ever depressing in its use of war and destruction to settle issues. The quiet creativity and functional progress of sewing circles has historically been a positive effort in times of stress.
