Philadelphia Sewing Collective is pleased to announce their new class for advanced stitchers-  Basic Corset Construction, Weds 2/27-3/19 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Old Pine Community Center

If you love the look of corsets, but cant find your size or favorite color, now is your chance to learn to make them! Taught by a full-time lingerie designer with extensive experience in corset design and construction, students will learn how to construct a basic corset complete with metal boning, front busk closure, and center back lacing.

Students will also learn a little about the history of corsetry, the proper way to fit, lace, and unlace corsets, and how to alter the basic pattern to make stylish variations. Materials are included with cost to make one corset; you will also receive the basic pattern to use many times over. Space is limited to 8 students. Class is geared towards sewers with intermediate/advanced skills.

Here's a possible option- Philadelphia Sewing Collective sponsors Monday Night Sewing Cafes.  The next one will be on Monday, August 27th (usually the 4th Monday of each month).  It's a free, drop-in event where you can work on projects, get advice and inspiration.  There are sewing machines, cutting tables, irons and ironing boards, and basic supplies.

You just need to bring a project and any notions, thread that you would need.

The cafe is held at the Old Pine Community Center at 401 Lombard Street from 7:30 to 10:00 PM.  For more info, please check out- www.phillysewing.org.

I just wanted to send a reminder that the 2nd Annual Fabric Swap Meet will be held this Sunday, 4/15 from 12:00 to 4:00 PM at the Old Pine Community Center, 401 Lombard Street.

This years 2nd Annual Fabric Swap Meet will feature demonstrations, hand massages, hors doeuvres, information booths and of course a whole lot of fabric for sale and swap!


Demonstrations include: spinning, felting, dyeing, upholstery, as well as machine and hand sewing.  Nonprofit groups such as Breakfree Youth Design and Education Works will be on hand to distribute information on local sewing and crafts programs.

Funds raised from this event will go towards purchasing machines and supplies for PSCs public classes held at the Old Pine Community Center.  Fabric donations will be given to select recipients of United Way of Southeastern PAs Gifts in Kind Program.

Hope to see you on Sunday!  For more info, please visit www.phillysewing.org.

Our group, Philadelphia Sewing Collective, is looking to start regular excusions to Fabric Row in the spring and summer.  It's something we've been looking to do for our students who are kind of overwhelmed by Fabric Row and fabric shopping in general.  We'd be happy to set up separate shopping trips for non-students.  PSC is also in the process of securing discounts with a lot of the merchants on Fabric Row for our members, so that might also be something that people would be interested in.

Also, we would like to schedule Jo-Mar trips for anyone who wants to head out to the far reaches of NE. Philly, Kensington, and S. Philly.  Jo-Mar is a wholesale place and is where a lot of local designers pick up discounted fabric and goods.
