Greetings! We’re back from a glorious SewJourn to Santa Fe, and are booking events for 2015 and beyond… lots of plans in place, so there’s no better time for us to earn a $150,ooo grant from Chase, in their Mission Main Street Grants program. THANK YOU for your votes that helped us to achieve the first qualifier – we’ve reached the required 250 votes, which means Chase will consider our application for one of the 20 generous grants of $150,000 EACH! Chase is promoting small business in a big way, and will unveil the recipient companies in January. Voting closed on October 17, with our final qualifying count of 297, my new favorite number ; )
Following a summer full of activities, we’ve just completed the first run of an exciting new workshop for Fall 2014, SEW BASIC. It’s for all of you who are true beginners at sewing, and are ready to learn your machine, as well as the basics for creating your own African Accents! If you missed it, stay tuned for the next session in early 2015. Then you’ll be able to take full advantage of the CE calendar of events ! And if you already sew, let your non-sewing friends know SEW BASIC will be back soon ; )
New to the CE Shop are our “Natural since…” pins, celebrating natural hair with a gloriously afro’ed Betty Boop! Just write in the year you “went natural” with a Sharpie. If you’re a natural hair enthusiast, pick up your pin today (and a few for your Natural friends, too). Order online, or get yours at the Connecticut Natural Hair Expo – we’ll have headwraps and more there, too…join us there on Nov 8-9.
