What we're about

This group is for people who are interested in sewing, quilting, cosplay, and costume making or those just looking to meet creative individuals who love working with textiles. All skill levels welcomed including first time sewers. I hope to offer you a place to learn and grow your sewing skills in an environment that is welcoming and supportive.

No matter what your "thing" is, if it involves fabric & thread, it is welcomed here. My hope is that our Meetups will include open sewing time mixed in with a little instructional time, show 'n' tell, food and laughter. An occasional field trip to fabric stores or other related sewing shows / events would be welcomed as well.

Disclaimer: I currently own a business that is dedicated to teaching sewing and quilting to adults and children. Therefore, the group will typically meet in my Sewing 4 Fun studio (http://www.sewing4fun.com). Since I own this space, I can control what happens in this space. I will open up the studio for use during our meetups which includes machines and tools for those who need them. If you have your own machine and tools and feel comfortable bringing them along, that's fine too. Just because this is at my place of business it doesn't mean I will be soliciting business from you without your permission.

Until we meet in person....happy sewing!
