Dear ASDP Board
All Oregon Chapter members are invited to our board planning meeting! As the Portland area counties begin to move forward into less restrictive gathering policies, we are meeting to set the meeting calendar for the coming year.
Join us in the home of Jennifer Phillips, drinks and light refreshments will be served.
Contact Jennifer, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Speakers: Carol Fresia and Sarah McFarland from Threads will join our March Voices, which will be all about the upcoming Selvage/Salvage ASDP member challenge!
Carol and Sarah will start by reiterating the challenge, talking about why they went with this theme, and show some examples of successful upcycling and use of selvage. The remainder of the session will be devoted to fielding questions and comments.
If you have questions that you would like to have addressed, but aren't sure how to explain your question without giving away key elements of your potential design, please submit your questions to Challenge Coordinator, Helen Haughey at email@example.com.
