Sunday Sewing Circle

Bring those creative projects of yours, and work alongside other SacFAN artists. Whether you quilt, knit, crochet, scrapbook, or just like to share ideas, come join us!

We have reserved a room which is inside the Raley's at Natomas Blvd. and Del Paso Road. Enter Raley's on the left hand side of the store. The Event Center is to the left of the pharmacy.

No one here will scoff if you are making a Flying Spaghetti Monster quilt. They will probably want your pattern. Remember, we are Freethinkers. All are welcome!

We talked about having this as are next Meetup for the group. How do we set it up and organize? The dates are a Thursday Friday and Saturday. 10 to 5 each day. Who is interested?

      Hi Susan (Vincent and Katie), Thanks for getting this organized! The best way to set up a quilt show "field trip" would probably be to pick the best time for you, and then announce it as a proposed meetup on SacFAN. This process gives the trip maximum exposure, and could bring in more new people. Who else is interested?

    I am really looking forward to this! I've been a member of SacFan since 2009 but have not been very active the last 3 years or so. This is right up my alley!

    It was wonderful chatting with so many nice people. Thanks to everyone who came to the (maybe) only SacFan meetup which is held inside a grocery store. It was fun.

    Great meetup. Good conversation and great space.

  • Susan M.

    My husband will be showing off his quilt and "special" grocery bag.

    2 · February 23, 2014

  • Susan M.

    Since we are meeting in a grocery store, I will probably work on grocery bags. Makes sense.

    1 · February 23, 2014

  • Susan M.

    I am getting so excited about the newest meetup in Sacramento! Our location is inside the Raley's grocery store at the corner of Natomas Blvd./Truxel Rd. and Del Paso Road (not Del Paso Blvd!) We will be in the Event Center which is close to the pharmacy. See you there!

    Sorry I'm not going to make it. Been fighting with a migraine this week and it's still bothering me today.

    February 23, 2014

    • Susan M.

      Jenny, That's a shame that you don't feel well. I hope that you feel better soon, and can come to the next meeting!

    Is it time yet is it time yet? I'm so excited about today. I've been cutting out some pieces to sit and stitch in case I get too bored with the binding.

    2 · February 23, 2014

    • Susan M.

      I am really excited, too! Just think, we have a chance to make lots of new friends! I can't wait. See you there.

    come on guys, we can sew do this!

    3 · February 23, 2014

  • Miss K.

    I may not be able to be there at 1 but plan on getting there as soon after that as I can. I've finally got the binding stitched to a table topper quilt I've been haphazardly working on for a year so I am bringing that to hand stitch the binding and FINALLY get it done!

      Isn't it fun to work on those UFOs? ..UnFinished Objects? See you there!

      1 · February 20, 2014

  • Susan M.

    Only two weeks to go! We have extended our time from 1 to 4 so that we can chat and be creative as long as we like. So far we have a knitter, two scrapbookers, and a couple of quilters. What other activities will we have? Even if you don't bring a project, you are still welcome to come meet some terrific people. See you there!

    • tamara

      I crochet! At least, that's what I will be working on!

    I can't believe this is so close to me! WOOOO HOOOOO! I'm so there! :)

    Do we bring snacks?

    January 23, 2014

    • Rae H.

      That works for me!

      January 23, 2014

    • Susan M.

      Yes, we can buy food inside the store and bring it in. We have the room for three hours from 1 to 4.

      January 23, 2014

  • Susan M.

    Sorry... The "correct" map link pointed to the wrong location. We are meeting inside an actual grocery store.
    I may have finally won this discussion with the computer, but the computer was keeping score. Questions? ;)

    1 · January 21, 2014

  • Susan M. changed the location to Raley's Grocery Store

  • Susan M. removed the location. It was Raley's Event Center

    I'm actually a MAYBE for this date. I won't know for sure until last minute.

    1 · January 21, 2014

    • Susan M.

      Melonie, we have plenty of room and you are very welcome to join us!

      January 21, 2014

  • Susan C.

    Do they have an electrical outlet for a sewing machine?

    1 · January 20, 2014

    • Susan M.

      They probably have electrical outlets, but I will scout out the locations. They have nice big tables and lots of chairs.

      January 20, 2014

    • Susan M.

      There are several electrical outlets in our room and some large tables.

      January 21, 2014

  • Susan C.

    This is a great idea!

    2 · January 20, 2014

  • Miss K.

    This sounds charming and delightful! I plan on bringing my 'Trip to India" scribble book. (not proper enough for a scrapbook, so I call it a scribble book).
