There is an interest to learn the basics of sewing. We are setting up a workshop/tinkering evening once per week or bi-weekly. It will be in the following format: you bring your own project and you can ask the people who are more experienced for help and instructions. On the first one or two evenings some basics will be explained by Narya.


  • To be determined soon
  • First evening: choose a pattern, you will learn how to measure and how to read a pattern
  • Second evening: transfer pattern to the fabric, making marks on the fabric, preparations for putting the fabric together
  • Subsequent evenings: put your project together


  • There is one good working sewing machine and two from which I'm not sure if they work. Bringing your own machine is preferred if we are with more people
  • A working locker machine will be at the space soon
  • Will bring a few magazines with patterns ranging from simple to complicated stuff

Needed for the first evening:

  • Pattern paper
  • Scissor for paper
  • Pencil, sharpener, eraser, ruler
  • If you already have a plan/pattern you also need the materials in the next section
  • Pins

These are the basic materials you need to have once you start with your project:

  • Needles
  • Thread
  • Fabric
  • Scissor exclusively for fabric (!!)
  • Buttons, zippers, or whatever your project requires

Disclaimer: maybe I forgot something that I will add to this page later
