Sewing Group

(Quilting)

Free

Registration currently not needed

Tuesday 10:00-12:00

Sewing machines are available to be used for personal projects. There is also the opportunity to quilt.

Wednesday 17:00-19:00

Once a week we meet to make quilts (patchwork blankets) together. Through a multi-step process that's also suitable for beginners, we take old pieces of cloths from blankets, clothes, and other things, and sew them together in patterns, so that in the end we've made a pretty new blanket!

Quilting isn't just fun, it also serves a good purpose. The quilts are donated to a non-profit organization active in refugee camps, meaning that the blankets go to where they're really needed.

It doesn't matter if you are young or old, have lots of experience in sewing or are just a beginner. All are welcome to come, take a look and join in.
