Candidate for Social Media Manager: St├ęphanie Houle

My name is St├ęphanie (@ecorcesdentelles), I'm bilingual, energetic, and creative. I love sewing, photography, writing, baking and knitting
My background is in portrait photography and journalism. I have spent my entire adulthood in Ottawa and I am so happy to be part of a group like the Ottawa Garment Guild.
It would be an absolute honour to be the Social Media Manager for OGG and to contribute to this wonderful community. I want to make your work shine and be a leader in both external and internal communications.


Candidate for Events Coordinator: Renee Michienzi

Hello Ottawa sewists, Renee here!(@
oh.sew.renee) Most of you will know me as the social media coordinator and I'm happy to step down and welcome a new member to the board in that role. After two years behind the screen I'm feeling up to the challenge of being the special events coordinator. I love the planning process and engaging the members in fun and exciting new events. In planning special events I plan to collaborate with the Board to bring fun & fashionable opportunities (hopefully in person!) in the upcoming year. It's been an absolute pleasure connecting with you all over social media, and I'm look forward to the new task.
