Frequently Asked Questions
What is Sew-N-Sew?
Sew-N-Sew is a non-profit, charitable organization with the primary purpose of promoting activities around Fiber Arts to all who are interested.
What activities are available?
We are planning multiple activities such as: Sew-N-Sew Groups, LEOs (Learning Enhancement Opportunities), Studios and Open Houses for Charity.
We may not have all activities organized when we first open but keep checking our website for our Activities Calendar.
What is meant by the term "Sew-N-Sew Group"?
A “Sew-N-Sew Group" is a dedicated time where people with similar interests work on their own individual projects. There is no instructor. A group meets once a month (12 meetings/year), always the same day of the month, (i.e. the second Tuesday or the Third Sunday) and runs for the entire year, from September through August. Some groups will meet for a full day (10:00 am to 4:00 pm), some will meet for a partial day (9:00 am to 1:00 pm or 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm), some will meet evenings (6:00 pm to 10:00 pm).
Are some Sew-N-Sew Groups devoted exclusively to some particular type of activity?
Definitely! We have specialized groups: machine embroidery, hand appliqué, garment sewing, knitting, quilting, fiber arts and more.
Who can join a Sew-N-Sew Group?
Only Full and Associate Members can register to reserve their place in a Sew-N-Sew group. A LEO pass holder can occasionally drop in if - and only if - there is space available.
What do I need to bring with me to a Sew-N-Sew Group?
Everything that you need for the project/s that you wish to work on - for example, your material, sewing supplies, and your sewing machine.
What is LEO?
It is an acronym for Learning Enhancement Opportunity. A LEO is an activity with an instructor.
How often do LEOs meet?
They can be one or multiple sessions each session lasting 2 to 6 hours. A LEO may also be referred to as a Workshop (usually one full day session) or a Studio (with private or semi- private instruction).
