“Getting to Know You and TRADEWING!”

We are so fortunate to be part of the National Sisters in Crime. This basis is what brings the local members together, and what a basis! The wealth of information, training, resources, and amazing people is overwhelming. Now we have even more, a focus on the services we all need and offer to each other as part of our craft. But wait—there’s MORE. One of the things that we as a group needed was to get things organized in one place, with accessibility and security. This is all found in TRADEWING.
