Old Fashioned Sewing Circle: Summer Journey Groups

It is Journey Group time again at Gateway Community Church

                             Summer JG

In the past, we have sewn clothing and wacky creature toys for church groups in Africa. It has always been a fun time while working for a good cause. My co-leader Ginger and I, took a break from the last session. We used that time to consider our next project and fielded many questions about when the next round would begin. The wait is over, sign ups begin May 10th with the first group beginning June 1st.

The summer session will be a short 6 weeks for 1.5 hours each time. Given the time constraints, we decided to keep this session simple with an old fashioned sewing circle. We will have no specific agenda and no group project to make. The goal of the group is to be social with other people who love to sew. Bring your unfinished projects and get them done! Gain inspiration from other creative people! Machine or hand-sewing, knitting or crochet, embroidery or tatting, whatever you like! 

I have a few ideas of projects I would like to work on including:

The Sew Together Bag

                                (9) Name: 'Sewing : Sew Together Bag

The Geo Pop Bag

                                (9) Name: 'Sewing : Geo Pop Canvas Cargo Duffle
And maybe a few more of these Vogue 9112 dresses

Registration begins on Sunday May 10th. We will meet at 6:30 on Monday evenings. You can sign up here. This group fills up quickly, so if you want to join us be sure to register on Sunday.

Our previous groups have had no skill requirement and we taught what was needed to complete the project. This session will not be a teaching session. You are welcome to sew along with others' projects, but a basic knowledge of sewing is required. If you need help along the way we will be happy to assist. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below.

If you are interested in learning to sew you can register for my June lessons here.

Happy Sewing,
