This meetup is for anyone that enjoys corss-stitch, embroidery, sewing, knitting, crochet, beadwork or any other type of handiwork. The purpose is to provide a comfortable, quiet atmoshpere where we can get the job done! : ) If you have a project that you would like to finish, and you would like to get out of the house and have the time to work on it, then you've picked the right group! Any type of crafter is welcome. I am able to help get you started on cross-stitch, or beadwork if you're interested in learning a new hobby. Hopefully, we will generate a new Sewing Circle of Friends that we can chat with, share ideas, and help each other when advice is needed. Times and dates will be adjusted once the group gets established and we decide the best time and place for our gatherings.We have an ongoing project of making Trauma Bears, for anyone that is interested in participating.  These are small bears, easily sewn, and distributed to First Responders to use for children (and adults) that need comfort in case of a traumatic experience. All items are donated to make the bears.

This meetup group is limited to 50 members.  If you wish to join, you must attend at least 1 meetup within a 3 month period in order to stay active.

Thanks for stopping by! Sew Long, Christy

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
