Queer Sewing Circle
In celebration of Pride month, Patchwork is hosting a workshop for LGBTQIA+ folks interested in exploring sewing across the gender spectrum. This workshop is designed for those interested in shopping for, altering, sewing, and/or designing clothing that fits both their body and their gender identity. In this casual afternoon sewing soiree, we'll discuss the historical intersections of gender and fashion, share tips for shopping for your shape, and explore techniques for clothing alterations. This workshop is open to sewists and crafty folks of all levels, though some experience using a sewing machine is recommended. Participants will spend the afternoon developing new projects, getting help with current projects, and socializing with other queer folks who love to sew! Bring a few projects and ideas and have fun! Suggestions: - Clothing you'd like to alter to better suit your gender - Sketches of clothing you'd like to make for yourself - Curiosity about your personal style and a notebook to start figuring it out - Images of your favorite looks to make a personalized mood board or zine - Anything else clothing/gender focused you'd like to work on
