Description

Sewcialise

Our regular Monday drop-in sessions take place 10-12 on Monday mornings term time only, currently at Bermuda Community Rooms, French’s Road, Cambridge.

For the purposes of the Fixometer, all our Sewcialise work goes into this event please!

These sessions are for people facing social isolation* who have completed a Sew Positive course, or are competent sewists, to carry on your upcycling journey, continue mending, complete an embroidery journal, or take part in a ‘Guest Workshop’ run by visiting professionals.

We supply materials, and will bring sewing machines on request, so do let us know in advance if you would like to use one. Places are limited to 8 per week.

*Social isolation may be classed as one of the following factors; unemployment, financial hardship, youth or old age, ill health (physical or mental), discrimination, relationship or family breakdown, poor housing, being a victim of crime, or as a rehabilitating offender.
