loulabelle has no particular reputation at present
Sewing/crafts/ etc etc etc

Right, i have posted in the past about trying to arrange a meet up around Uster area but no one seems to interested, all the crafty people seem to live Geneva way!
But i just wanted to ask if the were any crafty people over Uster way if they fancied helping another keen crafter learn any new skills i would be very interested.
Im sure there are courses but my german is diabolical so i dont think im ready for that yet. Just be nice to share ideas with a few people.
Thanks!

What aspect of sewing are you interested in?
There are all kinds of online sites offering classes and, if you let me know what you want to learn, I'll send you the names of some.

Hi, sorry, I may have missed your earlier posts. I'm a bit further away from Uster, but nowhere near Geneva!!
pm me, I would love to swap ideas. we are moving to a new place in September, and I would love to have someone to bounce ideas off.

ZIWA (Zurich International Womens Association) has a quilting group my wife attends weekly. Worth contacting them?

Re: Sewing/crafts/ etc etc etc

I thought I saw something on the notice board at the WAC in Uster for a stitch and bitch club but can't see any information on their website for it, maybe send them an email. www.wac.ch
