Hi! I just wanted to let you all know The next SDA meeting for Illinois will be Sunday April 3rd from 12pm to 2pm at the Chicago School of Shoemaking. This should be another really exciting meeting because I have arranged a mini workshop with Sara (the owner of The Chicago School of Shoemaking) instead of our regular meeting format! We will be learning to make a leather tassel keychain. This is just a taste of beginning leather working. Sara will also be selling discount coupons if you decide you like working with leather and want to take one of her main classes. There is no cost for this mini workshop but there will be a cash donation jar out if you want to contribute a few dollars towards the cost of supplies. I have taken one of Sara's beginning leather working classes and it was a lot of fun (I learned how to make a belt). I know you will all enjoy this meeting and Sara's class space is lovely! Sara also has a small retail section where you can buy leather, grommets, tools, and other leather working supplies if you want to buy more supplies to take home. As usual we will have a potluck, so please bring a snack to share. If you want to have a look at The Chicago School of Shoemaking's website it can be found here. Please let me know if you are coming so that we can have an accurate head count.

* The Chicago School of Shoemaking is located at 3717 N Ravenswood Ave, Chicago, IL 60613 on the 1st floor. Ring doorbell 113 *
