[Sewing] Sewing Digest, Vol 16, Issue 4

Hi Mary,
If you can't make it tomorrow, then maybe you could swing by on a Wednesday
night for SCOW (sewing and crafting on wednesdays). I believe those happen
every week.

As far as using the machines, there are no tests or anything. All you have
to do is pop. If someone else is working in the sewing area, it would be
nice to say hi, but you don't need to check in with anyone or anything like
that. However if you do get some use out of the machines, it would be nice
for you to consider donating money for Noisebridge. That is of course
optional, but it helps.
