Computerized Pattern Drafting Neighborhood Group — June 14

7 pm. Vicky Isliefson’s house

After Vicky’s presentation last month, we thought it would be fun to start a new group for computerized pattern drafting   The purpose of this group will be to help each other with getting started in software, measuring, design choices and inspiration. Any brand of software is welcome.

The first meeting will be Monday, June 14 at 7 p.m. at Vicky’s house. Please call or email Vicky if you plan to attend so you can get directions and so Vicky knows how many chairs she needs. (316) 529-1565;
