Many meetings are virtual.

Full chapter meetings meet in Clifton, NJ.

Each meeting is different. Sometimes we sew for charity, have show and tell or listen to an educator. Twice a year we host a virtual educator on a variety of topics. This past year we hosted Pamela Leggett, Katrina Walker who talked about Bojagi and Lorraine Henry who introduced an innovative method of pattern alterations for fit.
