Dee Cornell, Newsletter Editor
Thirty years in middle school classrooms and libraries put all time for hobbies in a position of low priority. But retirement opened a new world in which time was available and sewing was the first thing that I wanted to pursue. As luck would have it, with the new-found freedom, the “sewing sisterhood” was discovered, and what a joy it has been. With the founding of FSS, new sewing worlds continue to open. It’s an honor to have such an organization in my home state. The FSS newsletter, along with the beautiful website and informative Yahoo group, is a way to reach all of the members. The newsletter belongs to the members, and they all welcome to contribute, make suggestions, and submit ideas.
