Some of our Transition Town Media friends are hosting a SEWING SWAP this Saturday, January 19 from 2:00 to 4:00 at a private residence located at 3432 N Providence Road in Media.
Please come and bring your extra:
- Fabric (large pieces and interesting scraps)
- Sewing supplies (scissors, pinking shears, thimbles, pin cushions, seam gauge, etc.)
- Sewing notions (bias tape, rick-rack, elastic, iron-on interfacing, iron-on patches, zippers, buttons, etc.)
Take home whatever you need. New sewers are VERY WELCOME to join us and start their own sewing collection. ANYONE IS WELCOME. Come on over a find out what we do.
The swap was inspired by discussions in our new reskilling group. This group is dedicated to community members teaching and learning from each other. We are interested in developing such skills as making homemade household cleaners and personal care products, canning and preserving, making homemade cheese, making wine and honey mead, gardening, permaculture, homesteading, raising chickens, mushroom propagation, knitting, sewing, crocheting, quilting, alternative-energy cooking skills (solar, rocket stove, cob oven); open air food drying; organic/non-toxic pest control; paper making; basket weaving; furoshiki, working with natural fibers – dyeing and spinning, ayurveda healing, and caring for and milking dairy goats and doll and toy making.
