Sewing group?

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • This isn't exactly a meetup event, just wondering if people feeling like meeting up to do some sewing? I've also started knitting, it could just be a crafting together sort of group/meetup...I have a big diningroom table which could hold 3-4 sewing machines or other equipment, etc., we could have cocktails (or whatever) and crafts night here at my house in Allston or wherever.. I finally bought a sewing machine and have really been getting into it, right now working on a sheath dress which was interrupted by a big elephant gift project...needless to say, spending lots of time with the machine lately; also knitting a hat which needs to be completed in about two weeks. Any ideas & suggestions for this group would be awesome, we could help each other with projects, etc. Yay craft groups :)!

    I'd love to come! I'm a self taught hans sewer, who wants to get more comfortable around a machine. I primarily make doll clothes, but I would love to branch out into human clothes. My only concern is availability. I work in the restaurant business, so I'm unavailable in the afternoon or evenings. Saturdays are a no go for me as well. :(

    well I would not mind if you guys were to meet at my place it's pretty big so i can comfortably host if needed.
    PS:I live in lynn ma I'm not sure if you guys would mind the drive.And having to be off on a weekend would work best for me.

    I just joined this group, but I've been having sewing nights with some friends Monday evenings in Dorchester. This conversation is old but it looks like it never worked out.

    I'd love someone to teach me how to sew better. I'm not good at all!

    I have always been interested in doing an old fashioned sewing circle. could be organized many ways, but maybe each night we all help 1 person with their pattern- set up a production line. Great for crazy quilt making.

    Hoping to revive this thread - would be great to do a sewing event. I could also host. Wondering if Sunday afternoons ever work for people... if we get enough yeses we can perhaps schedule something in the next few weeks. Time to get crackin' on any holiday projects!!

    I'd love to bring my sewing machine and have someone help me with it; I think it's jammed. A Mon, Tues or Wed evening would work well for me.

    Neither of these dates work for me either. :( I don't know how to sew, but I would love to learn!

    I would love to have sewing meetup but yes, how to get all the sewing machine action in one place?

    I'd love to join. I've wanted to do this for a long time. I've had a sewing machine for 3 years...and don't know how to use it...and prefer to hang out with people when I do! As long as the date works I'll be there. :)

    I would love to join! I live in Randolph but can get anywhere in the evenings. I'm starting to work on a quilt for my daughter and would love company! I live in a small house so it's hard for me to sew because of the noise (waking my children up).

    I have a few sewing projects that need to be finished, as well as, some mending. I would love to meet at JP Knit and Stitch or anywhere else. I live close to JP in Fort Hill. I have been sewing by hand since I was 6, and last year took a class in Brookline adult ed.

    I'm in JP so probably JP Knit and Stitch would be the easiest location for me. I have to admit, though, that my sewing skills are pretty beginner. I've been sewing since I was about 8, but almost completely by hand, I only know two stitches, and most of the time I just kind of wing it by what I've figured out from tearing up the clothes I don't wear anymore. I'm actually considering taking a class first, unless any of you ladies might have the patience to teach me some?

    Abby - This sounds great! I would love to have more opportunities to sew with a group. Please let me know if you decide to get a group together.

    I would love this! I also always seem to be working or in class when meetups are held, but will definitely come when I can. Another suggestion for a meetup spot is the new JP Knit and Stitch at 461 Centre Street. I just stopped in the other day and they have machines for rent at $10 an hour whenever classes aren't being held, and a work table and couches for any non-machine needed projects

    Thanks Meg, I work evenings and somehow I ALWAYS seem to be working the evening of meetups, I'll get to one for sure at some point :). Sounds awesome!! Happy holidays!

    December 18, 2010

  • Meg S.

    This sounds a lot like our meet-ups, so of course I like it! We exist as a space to get creative with whatever projects you come with as individuals. We have knitters knitting next to paper crafters gluing and it's great! Hope you'll join us sometime.
