Here's your opportunity to fulfill the ultimate sewing fantasy and hiatus in one of San Francisco's turn-of-the-century private clubs.

The Marines' Memorial Club offers comfortable lodging, an excellent restaurant, inviting swimming pool and a sunny conference room on the 10th floor with San Francisco views where you can sew to your heart's content. Room is open for sewing from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

You'll not waste a second of your precious sewing time . . .  an elevator ride up will get you something to eat, a ride down will take you to your room for that quick power nap.

And, best of all . . .  it's located just 2 1/2 blocks from Union Square and 4 blocks from Britex fabrics!

  • Master combining patterns to get the exact look you desire.
  • Learn time-saving techniques that give you professional looking results.
  • Try on a plethora of garments from Sandra's wardrobe (most have current pattern numbers).
