What we're about

Welcome to the Sewing With Style meetup group! We have an extraordinary team of meetup leaders who offer their skills, expertise, and ideas in a variety of topics, for seamsters of many levels.

Our meetups are casual, informal, and fun, and end up being very educational and inspirational. Take a look at our calendar and join us for a meetup!

Sewing Party - April

Me & Ewe

$2.00

This is an open sewing session for any and all skill levels. Bring your unfinished/ new projects along and sew away whilst we chat, drink and generally carry on. This is a good session to get any help you might need, whether it's pinning that dart in the back, interpreting pattern instructions or setting the world to rights one garment at a time :) Bring your project supplies, a snack/ drink to share and a willingness to help a fellow sewist down the road to a finished fabulous project. Please be careful to rsvp for this one (and update if you find you can't make it later, please). We'll need to plan the space according to how many people are coming and we'll also need to know if you plan on bringing your machine. Thanks!

Show & Tell - May

Me & Ewe

$2.00

What have you been stitching lately? Whether it was a roaring success or horrific failure, bring along your latest project (or projects!) and share with us! About Project Review This monthly meetup is a "round table" where we share the projects we've been stitching. Bring along the pattern you used, if applicable, and let us know the details about your experience -- how'd you like the pattern? what materials did you use? what would you do differently next time? This is always an inspirational and educational gathering -- guaranteed to flare up the sew-jo! :) Even if you haven't made anything recently, feel free to come along to oooh and aaaah over others' makes. All sewing levels are welcome!
