Calendar of Events

Unless indicated otherwise, Sew Chicago Neighborhood Group meetings are held on the second Friday of the month, beginning at 5:30 p.m. (or as soon as you can get there from work). To receive evites to our monthly meetings, please email Chief Instigator Wendy.

January 10, 2014: On a Roll with Roll Collars

Designing roll collars feels almost like waving a magic wand. We’re not talking Peter Pan collars here. We’re talking collars that stand up and out from the garment and fall in a graceful curve. Wendy will have a completed jacket and sample muslin variations, then walk us through the surprisingly simple process that gets such beautiful results.

February 14, 2014: Create a Personal Croquis

So many silhouettes and design details seem like a good idea on the pattern envelope, but what will they look like on you? Before investing the time in sewing a muslin, why not “audition” them on a personal croquis? Linda will show us how to make this helpful personal design tool.

March 14, 2014: TBA

Mollie is working on a presentation for us that we hope she will have ready in March. Stay tuned.

April 11, 2014: Lovely Lingerie

This one has been promised for years. Wouldn’t it be great to have a silk slip or cami trimmed in lace? We’ll explore the essential techniques, look at some samples and come away with a resource list.

*For events that require pre-payment, please email Chief Instigator Wendy.

      Hi Debbie,

      I’m forwarding your information to our Chief Instigator Wendy to contact you. We meet in downtown Chicago in the home of one of the members. This makes it convenient for those working downtown to come after work.

      Looking forward to seeing you at a meeting!

  6. Hi All;

    I love this blog and wish I was in Chicago to sew with you.

    Do you know about the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo that will be coming to Chicago in March? March 31 to April 2

    Would love to meet many of you while I am in town as I arrive Sunday night from Cleveland before the show starts.

    Here is the link to the show.

      We do know about the show and we are looking forward to attending. Let us know your booth number and we’ll be sure to stop by and introduce ourselves.

    You all have been on my “to do” list ever since I had the pleasure of meeting Tina at the Expo in March. Please email the location to me! Thank you so much!

    • Wendy says:

      We’ll be so happy to welcome you to our group!

      • Nancy Roemer says:

        I know it’s still early, but please keep me on the e-vite list for meeting locations! I hope to be at the August meeting: organization is not my strongest suit!

  8. L Thomas says:

    Hello! I’ve been looking for a sewing group for so long! I am a beginner but am interested in your wardrobe planning session with The Mahogany Stylist. I am a college student, so I would not be able to attend many meetings past August, but please let me know about the event tomorrow (today! eek!) if it’s not to late to stop in.

  9. Wendy says:

    We were so happy to meet you last night. I can’t wait to see the silk dupioni dress you make for that wedding!

  10. Amy Steanik says:

    I am interested in joining the group! Could you please e-mail me information regarding the sign up process and what is up for 2012 etc. Thank you!
    Amy Stefanik

  11. Beth says:

    I am also interested in the group and would like more information.
    Thank you,
    Beth Hines

  12. Wendy says:

    Amy and Beth, I’m so glad you are interested in Sew Chicago. We look forward to meeting both of you.
