What we're about
Sewing is fun, creative and yes sometimes frustrating hobby. It can be a solitary and sometimes lonely hobby. Our great-grandmothers had a sewing circle, where they would get together weekly to chat and sew. I say we relive the hey days of a sewing circle, but with a cool, modern, chic women twist, this group will be for beginners as well as advanced sewers. I love the idea of a sewing circle, where I can meet ladies that love to sew as much as I do.
I think it would be fun to sew with others ladies who understand the joy and frustration of this crazy hobby we have taken up. If you sew with a group you are guaranteed to keep your creative momentum going and actually start and finish a project in a reasonable time. We won't be getting together weekly however the goal is to shoot for 2x a month. We will: sew, fields trips, attend classes, lectures, how to demonstration and shop for fabric not just in stores but charity shops, outlets and garage sales.
Bay Area has some really great sewing meet ups. But none on the peninsula. One of my motivations for starting this group is the closest sewing meet up to me was either SF or SJ. I didn't want to gather up all my sewing stuff and drive all over. I will be hosting sewing outings all over the Bay Area but MOST sewing get together will be (in South San Francisco) and up/down the peninsula. I invite ladies from all over to join but this group will be focused on the peninsula.
• a clear photo of yourself. (Not a group photo, a sunset, a blurry photo, a cat, dog, bird, quirky saying). all of our gathering will be held at a members home. We as hosts should know who is coming into our homes.
• Sorry gentleman, ladies only.
• For restaurant/concert outings, you will be required to bring CASH so we can settle the bill with one credit card.
• If you are a NO SHOW you will be removed from the group-Why? It’s just good manners. It’s about being respectful of your host/organizers time.
