Over Mother’s Day weekend, Noblesville’s go-to sewing shop, Always In Stitches, will be one of 26 shops nationwide to host a sewing event that will feature instructors from a popular DIY website, Sew4Home.
Let’s Go Sew is a three-day event at the O.V. Winks Building at the Hamilton Co. 4-H Fairgrounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville, where participants will complete three sewing projects – a tote bag, an embroidered clutch bag and a pillow.
“We are the only shop in Indiana offering this event, which appeals to younger DIYers,” Always in Stitches employee Ros Demaree said. “The best thing is, they don’t have to bring a thing. Sew4Home and the industry partners collaborating with them provide the sewing and embroidery machines, the fabric, the notions, the sewing tools and instructors.”
“This is Sew4Home’s first Let’s Go Sew event, which makes Always In Stitches all the more excited to be part of it,” said Capi Saxton, shop manager at Always in Stitches. “The Let’s Go Sew weekend is a perfect time for any sewist to learn a few things and have some fun, and it will be particularly interesting for Millennial sewists who might be using hand-me-down machines. They’ll spend time all weekend using great new technology to make their pillow, tote and monogrammed clutch.”
Saxton said the instructors at the event are experts in teaching sewing classes as well as skilled sewists themselves.
“They can devote their whole day to their passion – even snacks and lunch are provided,” Saxton said. “Because it’s Mother’s Day weekend, it can be a very special mother-daughter outing.”
The schedule for the weekend is 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 6, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 7, and 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, May 8. Cost is $199 and up to 50 people can participate. Snacks will be provided all three days in addition to lunch on Saturday.
“Like all the Always In Stitches events, we’ll be topping off this sundae of fun with door prizes, SWAG bags and surprises,” Saxton said.
