Social Sewing

What is Social Sewing?
Social sewing is a very informal sewing group, started by Rachel of My Messings.

It is attended by sewers based in Melbourne and visitors to Melbourne. We are all super lovely and welcoming, so please come join us!  We meet about once a month at GJs Discount Fabrics, in Fairfield.

Can I come?

Of course! It’s open invitation to anybody that wants to join us to sew!

  1. I’m new here 🙂
    I’m just adding the dates to my email calendar, and the 19th Jan 206 is a Tuesday, I’m guessing it’s meant to be the 16th..?


    1. Hi Nicole!

      Sorry for the slow reply. I usually get notification of comments, but somehow missed this one.
      You are right, and I have corrected 🙂

      Hope to meet you at Social Sewing, soon!


  2. Oh yes please. Can’t attend this month as it clashes with ASG. Will look at other dates during the year
