Sewing Circle December Dates

There are two sewing dates in December. On Thursday December 5th the regular first Thursday sewing will be at 7:30 at 1105 Shady Ave in Point Breeze. This is a regular bring your own project and work on it sewing date. Both hand sewing and machine sewing projects are welcome as well as cutting and ironing. We have regular machines, a serger, and an embroidery machine. This is the last project sewing date this year, so if you want to finish something for the upcoming Twelfth Nights, this is a good place to sew. There are two resident cats, so medicate as needed.

On December 7th, there is a special Saturday scroll case sweatshop. It starts at 10am and will go until 6pm. The location is also 1105 Shady Avenue in Point Breeze. We have lots of cardboard blanks and lots of fabric remnants. You are welcome to bring larger fabric remnants if you have some, about 1/2 yard is the smallest useful size. I will ask that you take home your remants if we don’t use them. The goal is to use up the fabric I already have. Bring a machine or serger if you have one available. The more machines, the easier the assembly line gets. I will be providing bagels, juice, coffee & tea, tables & chairs, cardboard and fabric. You bring the sweat. We want to finish lots of scroll cases for the upcoming Twelfth Night events. Award scrolls need scroll cases.

Questions about either sewing date you can contact me by email sewing at debatablelands dot org, or send email to Hara Kikumatsu. You can find the email address in the dark pages.
