Hi Noisebridge Sewing List,

I have been enviously following the conversation thread, unfortunately I
work on Saturdays, otherwise tomorrow seems like such a good day to hop in-
just moved here but haven't had a chance to come by the space yet. However,
I wanted to suggest for the sign:

"What do I do when"

-I come to Noisebridge to sew for the first time? Should I talk to
someone/take a sewing test?

Thanks!
Have fun tomorrow,
Mary
