Join a Group
At this time all Groups are on hold until restrictions are lifted by the State of Indiana. Once in person gatherings are allowed each group will determine how they will proceed with their Sew Ins.
Quilting in smaller groups is a great way to get to know people and feel like you really belong. If you do not see one that you are interested in, maybe it is time to start another one! Maybe one for paper-piecing, hexies, machine embroidery, hand quilting or a Round Robin Group! If you are interested contact any board member.
Our “Groups” are like Quilting Bees. They are a gathering of people who want to share ideas, projects and companionship. That‘s it. We encourage you to take a peek and see if any of these interest you. No sign up required.
“Sew Bee It” Group – any type of handwork, wool embroidery, binding etc. It was meeting at Always in Stitches in Noblesville from 1-4 PM on the last Tuesday of every month. Usually 6-8 people participate. It has evolved. Some people bring their machines and sew, others hand sew. Sometimes people just pop in to visit! Knowledge is always willingly shared. We were all beginners at one time.
Little Dresses for Africa Group – At this time the group is not meeting, nor are there requests for dresses, so please take time to enjoy sewing for other charities until this group can meet again. Make simple dresses for young girls in Africa or other mission sites all over the world. Bring sewing machine, cotton fabric appropriate for a young girls (not too sheer for their modesty), 1/4″ or 3/8″ elastic, double fold bias tape, and colors. Meeting at Always in Stitches dates fluctuate, so check the website calendar for details. DOWNLOAD DIRECTIONS
Lunch Group – Some day soon we will Lunch again! The Lunch Group was started because after the meeting we were HUNGRY! Going to “Play” at the library for the afternoon would require nourishment! So it started with brown bag lunches, then to picking up something to eat, then a few people just started going to local restaurants. Then before long, it actually became a “thing“. Suggestions will be made at the end of the meeting on locations. Please leave your name tags on, if you do this, so our new members can find our group.
