I joined a church sewing group. I think originally they formed to work on charity projects such as quilts and hats. Mostly there were more women interested who did not know how to quilt or even sew. I go there and some people are making quilts but other people are just sewing, knitting, crocheting or working on whatever they want. Hopefully I will be getting some help in measuring to make myself a sloper soon. I helped a woman learn to sew a baby bib last week. There is a Christian focus but I am already a Christian so it is not a concern to me. I spend the morning working on what I want then I help make sleeping mats from plastic milk bags in the afternoon.
It also solves the problem of having to form a Burda group for me. I found that most public buildings do not give meeting rooms for free – even to non-profit or charity groups. So anyone around who is looking for a sewing group might ask various religious organizations if they have any groups. There is a need for modest clothing so many religious women sew their own clothes (Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh etc) Often they are not advertised outside of their own communities. If you can sew you could also volunteer to help people learn because often people cannot afford lessons in a sewing studio.
