Our first sewing group met the week before last and it was so fun to see everyone projects and inspiration.
Jennifer Griffith ofŠarka's Collectionjoined in with her own refashion projects. There were vintage patterns open on the floor and hand sewing on the couch. In fact I was inspired enough to start two new projects this week.
If your're new to sewing or to the group, check out the introduction post here to get an idea of what to expect and what to bring.
New works by Lauren Kenneally. Lauren was a featured artist last year during the First Thursday season and her paintings were so popular, we asked her back & gave her more space. It's summer at Dame, the shop is loaded, looks great and we love First Thursdays on South Street.
Stop by 5-8(or so) look at some great art, sip some punch and preview our 4th of July Sale!
We're excited to get this group started Wednesday night, drop by with your projects, questions and suggestions. We'll customize the group as we go. All levels are welcome, sewing is a great skill to share with others and can make the learning process that much quicker.
A piece of clothing you are interested in refashioning
A pattern that you have questions about, sizing, skill level. You can learn how to cut patterns in the shop (bring paper scissors)
Fabric that inspires you
A a work in progress that you would like to discuss & work on
Advanced questions in progress, setting sleeves, zippers, finishing seams
Please bring materials you will need to use, if you will be working in the shop, thread, needles, scissors, fabric facing etc.
If you don't have a sewing machine at home, I strongly recommend picking one up. There will only be limited access to machines in the shop. If you have a featherweight, by all means, bring it along. A great resource for refurbished machines and repairs is the Davis Square Singer shop here
