Sew. Indulge. Engage.
Sewtopia was inspired by the modern, online sewing community. With today’s technology, we are more connected to each other than ever before. Blogs, online swaps, and social media have given us the opportunity to make friends around the country and even the world. Through Sewtopia, these online relationships can have a real world meeting place.
We envision Sewtopia to be a support system for the online sewing community. We want to cultivate knowledge and help people make real life connections with other people in the sewing hobby.
Sewtopia is a weekend where attendees can leave all the stresses of daily life behind to indulge themselves, focus on sewing projects, and get together with friends, old and new. We will strive to do two amazing events each year. The spring event will focus on education and the fall event will be a retreat-style event.
“Being in an online sewing community has totally changed my life! I have more friends now than ever. There are people out there that honestly care about me, and we just communicate via email, blogs, and social media outlets. That means a lot to me, and I’m no longer a hermit quilter.”
– Amy “Sukie” Newbold
