Join the Becky Cory and the Curvy Sewcial to share project ideas and tips with other sewists in a fun relaxed atmosphere. Tea is included and guests are welcome to bring in snacks!
Robin McKenzie will be hosting the fall/early winter meetups and there will be an option to Zoom in if you can't make it in person!
You must have basic sewing and garment machine skills to join the Curvy Sewcial. The format of these meet-ups are not set up like a formal class or workshop. If you need sewing machine and basic garment making training you can check out our diverse workshop calendar!
You are welcome to use our scissors and tools while you are here, but you will need to bring along your own fabrics and thread for the sewing machines. We do sell these items in our store, so if you forgot, fear not, we've got you covered and you'll get a 15% discount on your purchases!
Our sewing studio features 6 Janome 3120QCD machines which feature 60 stitches including 6 one-step buttonholes. Janome’s Exclusive Superior Plus Feed System ensures even, stable feeding with any fabric. And the time saving features including memorized needle up/down, one hand needle threader, and lock stitch button make sewing easy. One of the most amazing features of this sewing machine is the pedal free sewing option. This machine has a start/stop button, which makeS sewing much easier for both children and people with disabilities. We also have sergers and coverstitch machines (previous experience required).
We also also have a great collection of curvy sewing patterns which are available for you can use during your time at The Makehouse!
