Sewing Day this Saturday, March 22nd

This Saturday, March 22nd, is our last event at the Anacostia Arts Center (and it's the last full weekend to enjoy our quilt exhibit hanging in the gallery.)  From 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., we're hosting an open sewing day with work tables set up throughout the gallery.  What an inspiring place to work!

The Center would like to know how many tables to plan for, so please RSVP here if you plan on attending.  This event is open to the public; you do not need to be a current member to attend! 

Just a note- remember that there is street parking only on weekends, so take that into account when choosing your supplies for the day.  There are plenty of outlets, but please remember your extension cords (and your sewing machine's cord!) if you are bringing a machine. If you have a tabletop ironing board and/or iron you could bring to share, or a rotary cutter, ruler, and mat, please comment below.

 And don't forget there is a café right inside the building that you can visit for lunch, coffee, and snacks!

What: Open Sewing Day
When: Saturday, March 22nd, 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.,

  1. Wish I could make it, but I will be on vacation. Have fun and see you a the April meeting!

  2. I will be there! I don't know about the car situation yet, so I don't know if I can bring more supplies.

  3. I am coming with all my stuff. Machine, ironing board, iron, cutting mat and rotary cutter and ruler. All kind of small for my small blocks. :-) I am really looking forward to our big sewing day at AAC!

  4. I'm joining this weekend. Looking forward to it!

  5. I am coming and will bring hand sewing (Farmer's Wife.)

  6. Wish I could make it but two 40th birthday parties on Saturday!
