My friends who help ensure that my lesson plans are correct, that the room set up is right, and that the project can be finished in the allotted time ...
It is with the help of my Cluster Club... We have been meeting for over a dozen years and they have put up with my crazy ideas for projects, suffered through my humming of "Work for the Union Label", laughed at my photo taking struggles and with total gratitude from me, they have straightened out the timing of my lesson plans and files. These are the ladies who love to sew, and love to try new things. Most of our meetings are just trying out new techniques but when I am close to a show, these ladies test out my designs and point out any details I missed like a "jump stitch that should be removed" and more. They are truthful in pointing out where I need to improve upon things. Not all our projects turn into lesson plans. In fact, the majority of our meetings are designed to simply have fun sewing together and we leave with a project done 95% of the time.
