Want to learn to sew? Beginning classes are held on Wednesdays from 4-6pm starting April 11 and Mondays from 6-8pm starting April 13. A 6 week session is $40 and there is still room to join us at the Community Sewing Studio at Grow Benzie, for ages 8 -80! You can join our group on facebook too.
Just need a machine so you can work on a project? Come by for our open studio. It's only $10 and there's one this Sunday, April 17, 1-4pm or Sunday, May 15, 1-4pm. Grow Benzie is located at 5885 M115 in Benzonia. You can get a complete schedule here. We need to prove that our community can support this venture so tell all your friends, or better yet, bring them along and sew with us!
This is Mary Ann Hendricks. She has spent hours and hours making this dream a reality! At our clothing swap she was hanging up the recycled valances and has been known to vacuum when everyone else was ready to leave. She is amazing!
Special thanks to my dear friend, Marcy Patterson Grudzien at mecca who helped us paint and get things organized for the big open house! And to Pam Smith for her help too, helping us clear away the dust and refold all the clothes. There are so many other who have helped us out and I want to thank them too!
There are sewing bees too to make the wooly veggies that we are selling for $5 to raise $$$ for the studio and new sewing machines. Join us on Friday, April 15, 7-9pm and Friday, May 13, 7-9pm. This is also a great time to stop by and make donations of clothing, fabric or sewing notions.
Look for us on the lower level in the back of the house at Grow Benzie. There's a sweet little deck by our entrance!
