We want to stitch with you! Join us for an informal meeting to socialize with other TSA members whose work focuses on stitching either in their artistic practice or research. During the first hour, our guest will share their work with the group in an informal share and discuss format. The second hour will allow for open discussion in the group. We want to meet other TSA members that are passionate about stitching and hope for the opportunity to informally socialize and share current projects. Stitch-enthusiasts that are not yet TSA members are welcome to join to learn more about our featured guest and to participate in the discussions
