Come Sew With Us!
On March 14th and 15th, we’re doing our first weekend sew-in. Our full day sew-ins at the Croatian Cultural Centre are very popular, and we thought it would be great to extend the fun for a second day.
Think of it as a travel-free retreat – You’ll be able to set up your machine Saturday, sew all day and into the night with your friends, go home to sleep in your own comfy bed, and come back Sunday and just keep sewing!
Can’t take a whole weekend off from the day-to-day? Come sew for just one day, that works too!
Because the sew-in is less than a month away, signups are now open to members AND non-members! Have a sewing buddy who’s not a member of the guild? They’re welcome to join us!
The sew-in starts at 9am on Saturday March 14th, and the room will be open until midnight that night. We’ll start again at 9am on Sunday March 15th, and the room will be open until 9pm. That’s 27 hours of sewing (and socializing) time!
If you’d like to come sew, please sign up ASAP.
IF WE DON’T RECEIVE ENOUGH SIGN UPS BY MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, MARCH 1st, THE WEEKEND SEW-IN WILL BE CANCELLED.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Payment is due at sign up, and is non-refundable.
The cost for the sew-in if you pay in advance is $35 for both days, or $20 for a single day. To pay in advance, use the paypal button below!

A few things you should know:
- Sew-ins are self directed – you bring your projects, and work on whatever you’d like to get accomplished. This sew-in is the same as usual, but if you’re interested, Paul has volunteered to teach a quick class on the pouches he’s been making, sized to fit a variety of electronic devices. He estimates it’ll be about 30-45 minutes, and he’ll do it around 11am on Saturday, March 14th.
- We provide a half table of work space and a chair. There is wall space for design walls and a raised counter that’s perfect for cutting fabric.
- You’ll need to bring your machine, supplies for your projects, extension cords and power bar, tools and meals/snacks.
