Saturday Sewing Bees 

June 18, 2019 June 2019 No Comments

As requested, we have put together a new series of sewing events for the winter months ahead. Come and enjoy the warmth of conversation and the sound of productivity every third Saturday from 10 – 12 at Thunderpants workroom 42 Naples Street.      

Not only productive, there are health benefits from sewing. The gentle humming of a sewing machine is said to relieve stress and encourage mindfulness. And, like many creative endeavors, sewing increases dopamine in the brain, which makes you feel more positive.    

If you’d like to learn to sew, we can help, sewing a reusable shopping bag is very simple and the finished product satisfying. If you can sew and you have your own machine, bring it along and join in the buzz!
