The inaugural meeting of the Victorian branch of ATASDA was held yesterday. There were over 40 people present and the mood was very upbeat. We were told of the usual procedures at meetings in other states and had some demonstrations of various techniques with an embellishing machine. Some people brought show and tell and described how they had achieved the work they showed.
I hope the group goes ahead and am very grateful to the people who are willing to organise it. I look forward to interesting workshops and new friendships.
The organisation was explained to us, including the benefits of becoming a member. These include workshops, online groups, a library and a newsletter.
