Improve your sustainability practices by learning to sew and mend by hand or machine. Create basic projects like: bags, pillow cases, simple quilts, zippered pouches, aprons. Participants can learn how to use a sewing machine, make simple patterns and can bring individual projects to alter or upcycle.

Sewing machines and supplies are available to share or bring your own. Suggested supplies: scissors, sewing machine, a specific thread color, a project you’d like help with or an idea for a project.

A monthly no-host gathering where you can bring your current project to work on around a community of like-minded makers. If you don’t have a project yet no problem, The Camera Obscura Art Lab is fully equipped with shared knitting, crochet, collage and drawing materials as well as ample table space for you to develop your own venture!
