Unplugged Sewing Party

We have a special treat for this Unplugged! Karel Riley will be providing a demonstration of her hand hem stitching technique/tips. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing one of Karel's hems, well, you never will because they are the most invisible I've ever seen. :) If you don't have a project ready for hemming, you could bring along a sample piece of fabric (pressed up) to practice the stitching -- that's what I plan to do!

Karel's demonstration won't take our entire session, so the rest will be Unplugged-as-usual. Bring along any of your handwork to work on, play with, or show off the rest of the time!

If you'd like, you can bring along a drink (clear only!) or snack to share.


About Unplugged

The Unplugged Sewing Party is a monthly gathering at Fabricker where we recreate our version of the old-school sewing circle. :) We leave our machines at home, and work on any handfinishing, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, etc. that we have in our baskets. All skill levels are welcome -- we regularly get novices at these sessions and it's a great place to tap into some expertise or advice from more experienced sewists. We look forward to seeing you!

    Thanks so much for the demo, Karel. I feel confident about hand-hamming now and am happy know about this stitching technique -- much better than slip stitching!
