This SIG is led by Terry Petti. For more information or to be added to the Sew Wearable's Member email list please contact her.
Meetings will be held on Zoom, on the 3rd Thursday of every month except during holidays and sewing events.
Please check with your NG Leader for dates and program topics.
Our programs are geared to sewing personal wear to your taste. Whether you use a sewing machine, serger or cover stitch machine, we have you covered! We've got answers to handling those nightmarish slinky, stretchy or fussy fabrics & trims.
We cover patterning, fitting & creative touches for casual wear, active wear, sleep wear, lingerie, shape wear and swim wear. At every meeting we ask our Participants to share their tips, techniques and resource site finds.
