Come and dedicate a little time to mending, patching, fixing and repairing clothing. Extend the life of your beloved item, stitch up an unwanted hole, or just make something more funky. Bring a cloth item or practice on one of our denim scraps.
Tacoma Sewing Club & Crafting Workshop @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Sew Club Tacoma is a “book club style” sewing club designed to grow Tacoma’s sewing community. Sew Club Tacoma is an all-inclusive, safe, and encouraging space where ALL sewing enthusiasts are welcome from every level of the craft!
We meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month to choose sewing patterns, discuss sewing processes, and SHOW OFF OUR MAKES! Participants may choose suggested designs or choose their pattern/project to complete. During meetings at Tacoma Art Museum’s Library Space (2nd floor), participants will take turns sharing their makes and can seek guidance and present their views on sewing processes.
We will select patterns, show makes, and socialize on the first Thursday of each month! On third Thursdays, beginners are encouraged to bring their sewing machines to receive project assistance.
More third Thursday crafting opportunities:
Remakery Tacoma will host free workshops alongside Sew Club Tacoma, focused on developing mending and sewing skills. Come and learn a new craft! These workshops are open to all ages but are better suited for those familiar with needles and scissors. All materials and tools are provided. Materials are 100% post-consumer, meaning we use only reclaimed, recycled, or donated things.
No registration is required!
We look forward to seeing you there!
