Charitable Sewing: Dress for Success

  • Oct 9, 2010 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Do you want to use your sewing gifts for a good cause? Here's another chance! Sewing With Style is hosting a sewing benefit for Dress for Success on Saturday, October 9, at Space12 (3121 E. 12th St.). The event goes from 10 am to 6 pm and we are looking for seamsters of all skill levels to help us in this venture. Dress for Success is a nonprofit that provides career-appropriate clothing for disadvantaged women transitioning into the work environment. Our objective with this event is to provide plus size clothing for Dress for Success clients as they are currently lacking a sufficient supply for their clientele. We will need your help to cut, pin, sew, etc. for this all-day event so we can make as many garments as we can for this organization. Any time you have available will definitely help. Please bring your sewing machine and serger, if you have one and want to haul it along, as well as any notions, fabric, or other supplies that you can provide for this day. If you have some plus size garments that you do not need or want that are career oriented, please bring them as well! Anything helps, and we would really love to have you be apart of this event and support Dress for Success by helping create quality garments for disadvantaged women. *Space12 has generously donated the building for our use on what is usually a busy day for them. We will have a donation jar at the space on that day, so please feel free to bring some dollars if you would like to donate to sustaining the space. Sat., Oct. 9 Space12 3121 E. 12th St. [masked] (Anslee) 10am - 6pm

    It was very satisfying! We got down to business quickly and cranked out lots of stuff. I think we made at least 18 skirts, plus a few blouses.

    As is always the case with meet-ups that span lunch time: it'd be nice if we made plan in advance re. lunch. If nothing else, it's more efficient to handle lunch for everybody together, rather than leaving everybody to their own device feeding themselves, which cuts into sewing time.
