Plan now for 2018 ASDP Sewing Retreat

The Colorado Chapter of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals (ASDP) invites you to the 2018 Sewing Retreat (see announcement below).  We always have a great time.  Now is the time to schedule your attendance and September 15, 2017 was the deadline to send in your registration and deposit so we can continue to meet at the Peaceful Valley retreat above Lyons.  NOTE: It is still possible to attend.  A few seats remain.  Send your information as soon as possible.

Rescheduled movie for August ASDP meeting

The movie “The True Cost of Fashion,” originally scheduled to be shown in July will now be shown at our August 28 meeting.

Here is a summary of the movie from the website TrueCostMovie.com:

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

July meeting topic changed.

Our meeting in July will be on July 23rd. Instead of the planned movie, we will have an extended show-and-tell session. We will meet at Koelbel Library in the Living Room (not our usual room). Please bring at least one of your sewing projects as show and tell. This will be a round table discussion to share techniques and ideas.

Board members please plan on staying for the board meeting afterwards – we need to prepare for the September annual meeting.

Monday April 24, 2017, meeting is a Field Trip to Ft. Collins.

We will meet at the Avenir Museum’s main building at 216 East Lake Street. It contains three of the five exhibits. 

The museum opens at 11am, so we need to leave the Denver area around 9:30am.   Please try to contact other members so we can carpool.  I am happy to drive a couple more people in my car, just let me know so we can meet. Please let me know if you plan to come, so that I know to expect you. 

From Denver, head north on I-25 to Exit 268 – Prospect Rd. 

Turn left, so you are going west on Prospect. 

Turn right on Remington St, so you are going north.

Turn right on the next street – East Lake St and you are there!

Following the museum, we will eat lunch at a local restaurant and visit The Zipper Lady Warehouse.  Plan on this being an all day trip.  Hope everyone can come.  This is such a treasure and great place for learning. 

Thanks, Jan McK
