Bring your fresh or unfinished project to work alongside others at DPL's monthly sewing circle.
The crafty community of Central Oregon is invited to bring both their fresh and unfinished projects to work on alongside others, as well as a skilled professional to help answer questions if needed. All participants must be fairly self-sufficient with the skills needed to work on their chosen project, whether machine or hand sewing.
Everyone must bring all needed tools and materials for their projects (sewing machines, fabric, scissors, etc.). Irons and ironing boards will be provided.
Allison Murphy has been sewing for 30 years, 10 of which have been in Bend for her business utilitu sewing + design, which focuses on creating custom and original designs, alterations and repairs, and teaching sewing classes to all ages of learners. She is a founding organizer of the Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show (a yearly fundraiser for REALMS Schools since 2010), and helped create the High Fiber Arts Symposium (with Scalehouse in 2016). Allison lives with her husband and two children, along with cats and pigs, with dreams of being off grid in the future (yes, she has a treadle sewing machine for when that time comes).
