• After Hours Volunteer Fabric Rolling at ACR!

    Austin Creative Reuse- Creative Reuse Center

    Calling all volunteers! Austin Creative Reuse is looking for some help sorting and rolling their fabric donations for sale. They have a real backlog of donations to get out there. It would involve folding and rolling each piece of fabric to a uniform length, wrapping some tape around to hold the roll and marking the price. Easy peasy:) And all you fabricaholics out there would have first dibs on anything special that catches your eye - who doesn't need more fabric, am I right? Get to the fabric before Rachel does:) We're thinking of making this a monthly thing. The rolling takes place in the annex space at the back of the store. Just go to the store and let a staff member know you're there for fabric rolling and they can direct you.

  • Try-On & Alterations for Out Youth's Youth Prom

    Out Youth's Youth Prom is a prom for LGBTQiA+ youths 12-18. A recent clothing drive has garnered much fancy clothes for youths to choose from for their prom. Out Youth will hold a "try-on & alteration" event for the kids to come pick out their outfit and try them on and have them altered as needed. We will bring our sewing machines/sergers and do the alterations. We can also help with the try-on if possible. I would think that we want to keep the alterations simple, quick, and possibly a bit kludgy: hemming of pants, cuffs, hems, etc., taking in/letting out of simple seams, adding/taking out darts, etc. There will be snacks and drinks. More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/852248391782422/ (The Youth Prom is Sat 4/[masked]pm: https://www.facebook.com/events/283292959011206/) Please come help make this prom a memorable one for these kids!

  • Sewing Party - March

    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.
