Our friend, Campbell (a Subversive Sewer), received a really cool shirt from China that was too small for her. So, she (and her crafty mom) applied a Sew Subversive technique from "Honey, I Shrunk the Shirt" with great results!
Stitch's B*tches had dinner last night with the Ladies of Modern Seamster (Devi, Linda, and Tula). This new magazine due out in the summer is gonna rock your world! It picks up where all of the other sewing mags for our generation have left off and inlcudes more than just projects for your making. Modern Seamster is the magazine for, well, the modern seamster. We can look forward to reading about the lifestyle and cultural of today's sewer and if the product is even half as cool as the editors, then we are in for a treat! --MA
Stitch is the first place of its kind, a drop-in urban sewing lounge open for Bay Area urbanites to sew and socialize. Imagine a location for a modern sewing circle, where you can use (but don't have to keep and maintain in your city-sized apartment) all the sewing equipment you need.
Our mission is to create a crafty community that encourages creation and inspiration, by using what you've already got and making what you need in a space you can count on. It is a place where a beginner can feel comfortable working on easy sewing projects and more advanced seamsters can take advantage of industrial sewing equipment. Our concepts include both making new clothing from start to finish and giving new life to old clothing through refashioning and restyling.
