Sewing can be a solitary activity. Though many of us connect via blogs and social media, getting together in person still has a special place.

Bay Area Sewists is a modern-day sewing circle, where we can meet in person and share inspiration and techniques, sew and shop for fabric together, swap patterns and fabric, and much more. The group was founded and organized by Meghan Hunt of Made by Meg in 2012. In January 2014, Chuleenan Svetvilas of C Sews became the group's organizer.

To join Bay Area Sewists, there is a 14-day trial period. After they you'll need to pay a $5 annual membership fee. The membership fee helps cover the fee Meetup charges to use its platform and other organizer expenses. Starting in September 1, 2016, everyone will need to pay the $5 membership fee to remain a member of the group. For more info, contact Chuleenan via the Meetup page.

You can also follow Bay Area Sewists on Twitter @BA_SewistsFacebook and Instagram (@bayareasewists) for meeting updates and news. Bay Area Sewists members can also join the private Facebook group
