Ladies Activity Club: Pillow Bee


























Tracy and Bille hosted us for a sewing project last night at Tracy's lovely home. She and a roommate have been working on renovating a huge three bedroom Victorian flat in Hayes Valley for over a year now.

Aside from being a great remodeler, Tracy is also an incredible seamstress. She's the one who made the new lining for my wedding dress. She works in the industry and had huge stacks of sample fabric for us to use to make throw pillows.

Unfortunately, the heat wave was in full force during the party. But it didn't slow us down from learning how to measure, cut, sew and surge our own pillows. Along with the project supplies, our hostesses offered everyone a spread of lemonade, crudites with hummus, clementine oranges, cheese and crackers, grapes, lemon cookies and brownie pudding.

Hi Sarah - We have a half a dozen LAC clubs around the country now. Or you could start your own. Email me if you want to chat about it!
