Joining the Threads of a Neighbourhood

MikeConnect with us, Stories

This past October, a community Sewing Club started of at the Hub! The club meets every Wednesday morning at The Hub (251 East 11th Avenue, Vancouver). Come hang out with us, get to know some awesome people and bring clothes that need mending or a project you’re stuck on!

The Sewing Club is led by the wonderful Amie Peacock. She is an energetic and inspiring woman who seeks to bring the community together so they can get to know each other and spend time working on small sewing projects. She loves the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, is committed to knowing her neighbours and enjoys teaching her skills to others.

This club is free and open to everyone, whether you are an experienced sewist or are picking up a sewing needle for the first time. You do not need to own sewing supplies to participate either! At the classes, Amie teaches how to use the right stitching methods for hand sewing projects, and also has her sewing machine and “Serger” on hand for more advanced projects. Amie is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher, spending time with each person to make sure they are comfortable with their project. So far, members have learned how to hem, fix torn linings in jackets, mend leather purses and patch clothes. The club is looking to participate in a group sewing project that would allow them to share their gifts with our neighbours and the larger community.

Join the Sewing Club! When: 9:30 – 11:30 am every Wednesday
Where: 251 East 11th Ave, Vancouver
RSVP by emailing or just show up!
