Whipstitch Sewcials

A sewcial is a mini-meetup that’s intended to be a chance to relax, meet some like-minded folks, do a little sewing, and maybe have a light bite in good company.  These are casual get-togethers that are organized in a public place.  Anyone is invited, although RSVPs are sometimes requested to make it easier for the host location to plan ahead.  Hand sewing is generally the rule, but if there’s space for a machine, I’ll make sure to include that in the info when it’s posted!  Upcoming dates for sewcials are listed below, and you can always contact me if you’d like to suggest a location or offer to host!

September 2015

Friday, September 25 from 10 am to noon.  Our first autumn Sewcial of 2015!  We will meet at Chattahoochee Coffee Company–just look for the folks with hand sewing or knitting in their laps!  You’ll find us OUTSIDE the coffee house on the ground-level patio or the riverfront deck, where the sun can warm our faces as we sew.  It’s always nice to bring a spare quilt to sit on and cushion your tush!  No RSVP required, but it can get a little busy–feel free to arrive whenever you can, and we’ll save you a seat.

Location: Chattahoochee Coffee Company, Akers Mill Rd

Friday, November 20 from 10 am to 12 noon.  It’s getting cooler!  We’ll meet at a NEW location that will keep us comfortable and out of the cold: the new Whipstitch studio!  Come by for an open house, some hot coffee, and get a tour of my new working studio and classroom space.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

NOTES ON CHATTAHOOCHEE COFFEE COMPANY:

Chattahoochee Coffee Company is all fair-trade and shade-grown, and they return a portion of their proceeds to the community. They have multiple locations througout Atlanta; we’ll be meeting at the Akers Mill location, which is located INSIDE the Walton on the Chattahoochee apartment complex. Turn into the complex entrance, off Akers Mill Rd (near the 75/285 junction) and pull up to the call box. You’ll see “coffee shop” and a number on the call box–dial it in, they’ll buzz you through. Follow the signs to the coffee house at the back of the complex, overlooking the river. It’s one of Atlanta’s real hidden gems!

Address: 6640 Akers Mill Rd, Atlanta, GA 30339
