Celebrate your creative liberties at the next session of the DC Threads Sewing Lounge! We invite you to join us on Saturday, July 11 from 1-4pm at the North Michigan Park Recreation Center for another great afternoon of creative sewing!
In response to your terrific feedback about the types of projects you'd like us to have available we have a great line-up of projects from which to choose! We have two fashion garment projects this month: a breezy summer blouse and a tie. And our eco-friendly project is a reusable shopping bag (designed with a self-storing pocket).
The "Easy Breezy Summer Blouse" was a hit at previous lounges and is a perfect garment for these hot summer months - and sooooo easy !
The "Tie One On" tie is a terrific way to express your fashion point of view with only a yard of fabric!!!
And finally, in our effort to keep DC green and to rid our city of plastic bags, we offer our favorite reusable shopping bag.
We'll supply the patterns, the machines, and all the notions you'll need for your afternoon of creating - all we ask is that you bring the fabric! Just click on the projects for information about the type and amount of fabric required (we do have a modest "fabric stash" available just in case!).
As always, you can bring your own project or browse our library of patterns for other ideas. We’ll also have tutorials for first-time and beginning sewists and plenty of fantastic people to share your threaded thoughts with.
If you haven’t done so already, head to the DC Threads website and respond to the poll - let us know if you'll be joining us. This helps us get a headcount so we can plan accordingly. And of course if you’d like to volunteer as an assistant for beginning sewists, please let us know.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 11th!!
Laura and Allison
