What is a sew-in? It's a virtual meeting over Zoom where each participant is working on their own sewing project, while chatting with other guild members in a small group. These virtual sew-ins are a great time to connect with your fellow guild members.
What should I work on during a sew-in? The choice is yours: machine work, hand work, ironing, cutting, choosing fabric, organizing, cleaning your workspace, or starting to think about your next project. It's also a great time to ask others for quilting tips and tricks, feedback, or advice. Since it's a Zoom call, if you're doing something loud, like running your sewing machine, be sure to mute your mic.
What kinds of sew-ins are there? There are general ones that have no specific topic or focus area, and often happen one day a week, ongoing for a number of weeks. These are just labeled as "sew-in (day of week)" on the calendar. There are sometimes sew-ins on a specific topic, such as working on the Block of the Month (BOM) or working on projects for the Social Justice Sewing Academy which focuses on anti-racist work, and those sew-ins have those topics listed in their titles.
Can I join more than one? Yes, you can join as many as you like!
How do I sign up? Go to the Calendar of Everything page, and choose the sew-in you want to attend, and follow the registration flow.
