What we're about

Welcome to Sew & Tell, a place where Austin sewing community gathers to share sewing projects, discuss patterns and fabrics, learn new skills and make new friends.

We organize free and affordable social events centered around sewing and crafts in north, central and south Austin. Our events include monthly 'show and tell' meetings, social sewing sessions, sewing retreats, free sewing classes, as well as sewing parties and picnics!

Whether you are into making apparel, costumes, home dec, accessories or quilting, as long as it has a sewing related component, we want to hear about it. We welcome all levels, including complete beginners. Our monthly Sew & Tell events are a great place to start! See you there!

Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sewtell_austin/

Majority of our events are free, however we do welcome your donations here:

All donations are invested back into our events.

Virtual Sew & Tell -- Saturday WIP

Online event

Let's sew together! The meeting will kick off with a brief chat for those who have questions on their projects. Then I'll ask everyone (including me!) to put their microphones on mute, but if anyone hits an obstacle on their project, he/she can unmute to ask for help. ***I'm limiting the number of attendees for this meeting, so we can connect better. Also, no need to tune in exactly at 1 pm, or stay the entire time--whatever works for you, we are here for it! ***For full capabilities, you will need to download the free Zoom app onto your phone, laptop, or iPad beforehand to attend the meeting. Please make sure the microphone and/or camera works. Also, before the meeting, figure out where to set your device for when you're working, and be sure it's plugged in/has a full battery. This meeting will be password-protected, and Glenda will send the password to you by 11 am, the day of the meeting. If you haven't received it by then, please contact her. ***Like what Sew & Tell is doing? Happy with how we support your sewjo? Support Sew & Tell on Patreon to cover our expenses!

Sew and Tell Central (Virtual)

Online event

Join us online to share your recent sewing successes and failures, tips and sewing inspiration. Please bring along current or past projects you would like to share; maybe there is a technique you would like to discuss or you're stuck with a project and need some encouragement or advice from some like-minded folk to problem solve you sewing woes. If you are completely new to sewing, I will be happy to suggest good beginner projects and resources. More than anything, this is an opportunity to socialize, exchange skills and get us through this period of 'sewcial' isolation! Please note you need a computer or a laptop/ tablet with a camera and microphone enabled. This meeting is free to attend, however please consider sponsoring us on patron: https://www.patreon.com/sewntell I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Sew and Tell North Evening (Virtual)

Online event

Join us for a "Show and Tell" roundtable discussion on what is SEW cool to you! Ask us questions on a fitting issue, tell us your latest triumphs and disasters, share your new obsessions in patterns, fabrics, techniques, inspirations. And do feel free to bring an older item that you made--we can still ooh and ahh over it! We welcome ALL levels, and all stitch interests (needlework, stuffies, quilting, apparel, cosplay, home decor). Even if you haven’t sewn a single thing, but are interested in starting a new hobby, feel free to join us—we can answer questions on where and how to start!
