Community Sewing Day This Saturday

Join Round Robin Collective member Amanda Browder on Saturday, February 18th from 1-5pm for a collective sewing day to make a large scale fabric installation in the Art@Renaissance space. Donate / Trim / Sew / Install – all of these processes will be different acts of sculptural collaboration in the making of a fantastic new piece. Learn how to sew, donate your extra fabric, or chat with your neighbors. Bring yourself, bring your fabric, and contribute to a community-driven collaboration.

DONATE
Contribute your unused fabric to help make the piece! We are making a fabric vortex and we need a lot of materials! We are looking for cotton, sheets, pants, and non-stretchy fabric in all colors and/or patterns. Donations of sewing tools such as needles, thread, and scissors would be greatly appreciated too. Recycle your fabrics into a spectacular piece of collaborative art!

A public fabric donation box will be available at St. Nicks Alliance Lobby to donate fabric at anytime.

For questions or to arrange donations, contact amandabrowder@gmail.com or ailsa.cavers@gmail.com or pop in and drop off donations to any Round Robin event planned on the calendar : http://roundrobinbrooklyn.blogspot.com/p/hospitality.html

TRIM
If sewing is not your interest, help cut the sections of fabric to make this large scale art work!

SEW
Help sew with easy straight stitches on a sewing machine – All levels of experience are welcome and tutoring is available! Together we will to physically bind the donated fabrics into an awesome shape!

CONVERSE – Help cheer on people working, make new friends and meet other community members, learn and collaborate. It will be a fun day of volunteerism and art-making!  Bring your craft-loving family members and friends! All groups are welcome:  kids, families and elderly friends!
