A new shop, a new website and a Minneapolis sewing meet-up
We’re in Residence at The Resonance Box, a lovely little space at 5255 Chicago Ave, Minneapolis. Our new home is shaping up quite nicely, if we don’t say so ourselves. We’ll be here until Springtime, so we have lots of time to get acquainted. We have beautiful fabrics and tools, independent and European patterns, supportive instruction, and lots of fun things in store. Now all we need is for you to join us.
We're still getting our legs underneath us, but we're starting to get some events scheduled...(Oh, and did we mention the new website, complete with a glitch or two?)
This week we will have open sewing studios on Tuesday 7-9 PM, Saturday 3-5 PM, and Sunday 1-3 PM. The cost is $25 and Sarah will be on hand to help. Bring a project, or let us help you get started on one. Bring your own machine, or use one of our lovely pink Eversewn Sparrows.
Our new website is now ready to accommodate scheduling, so sign up in advance if you can. Or, drop us an email, text or call so we can plan accordingly. If you want to show up at the last minute, feel free, we'll do our best to make it work!
Next on the list is an invitation to our first Sew and Tell meet up. If you're like us, community is an important part of your sewing experience. Whether it's following a fellow maker on Instagram, through a blog/website, an on-line course, a book or a pattern, we all make each other better when we share our experience. So what could be better, or more inspiring, than getting together with fellow sewists in real life?
We would love to meet you this Thursday evening, if even for a few minutes. We know your fellow sewists would love to meet you to! If you can, join us. Wear your me-mades or come as you are. Bring a recent or favorite make, UFO or WIP (better yet, bring a friend.) Review a pattern, ask a question, teach us a trick or tell us your story. We want to see and hear all of it. Or, if you’d rather, just come hang out and have some cake...
We are planning on making this a twice monthly event (one Sunday and one week night), so if you can't come out to play this week, don't worry. We'll get together soon.
We are so excited about this next one...Paper Poppies! We will all have a chance to learn to make them with Anna from A Paper Florist! We will host her in our studio on Saturday November 10 from 10-1 PM.
With Anna's careful instruction you will learn how to create vibrant, lifelike crepe paper poppies to brighten up your home for the coming winter! Each student will complete at least one flower in the workshop, and go home with materials to complete a bouquet at home. This would be a lovely handmade holiday or hostess gift, but you don't have to share...The class fee of $55 includes everything you need (templates, paper, glue, floral tape/wire, take home instructions). All you need to bring is you!
You can sign up for Anna's class here.
Last, but not least, we couldn't leave you without including at least one picture of pretty fabric. In the process of moving our inventory over to the new space, this little grouping of chartreuse, green, flax and grey came together almost by accident. We thought we'd share it with you. Hope to see you soon.
