Can’t sew? We can fix that. Try one of our beginner workshops. Want to sew better or work on improving your skills? Try an intermediate or advanced workshop. We have classes ranging from tote bags to quilts. Dressmaking to pattern making. We have something for all levels, interests, and ages.

Don’t care for sewing? Silk-screening workshops will be coming soon. You can find us at 1018 Wellington Street West in the heart of Hintonburg.

Hintonburg Sewcial Club

We have a bonus Hintonburg Sewcial Club this month!

One of our HSC regulars, the lovely and talented Crystal Parsons, has offered to organize an evening of sewing chemo caps for paediatric patients being treated for cancer at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Crystal and a gang of Fabrications regulars sewed a pile of these sweet caps for CHEO last year, so we’re doing it again!

All levels of experience welcome. As with all our HSC gatherings, our aim is to bring together people with different levels of sewing experience, share our skills, and leave a little sewing love behind! As we do at each HSC sewing night, all finished items go to the charity we’ve chosen for that month, and you go home with some great new/improved sewing skills!

Skills focus:

  • Matching straight edges to curved edges – you’ll be a master curve sewer by the end of the evening!

  • For those of us who don’t enjoy sewing curves, there are lots of straight edges to be sewn and fabric to be cut!

 

Supply List:

We’ll be working with the Milly Tie Hat pattern – a freebie found on the Brimming with Love web site. If you want to get a head start, you could get some pattern pieces cut and bring them with you to sew at the shop.

Fabric requirements:

  • Good quality, 100% woven cotton – quilting weight, flannel or voile in .5 metre cuts, or smaller pieces that can be used for the hat tops.

  • CHEO welcomes all fabric colours and prints.       For this project they have asked specifically for colours/prints that would appeal to teenage boys, particularly anything hockey themed.

  • This pattern has top and side pieces, so let’s think about red/black/gold/white solids or plaids for local Sens fans…?

All HSC projects are made from donated materials. Please bring what you can from the list above, or purchase supplies in the shop the evening of the gathering.

Prerequisites: 

A charitable nature and desire to learn!
