    Wow. This sound like an amazing collaboration.

    Its just such a pity that there is nothing in the UK to rival this and allow fashion sewers of all levels to participate, learn and develop their skills.

    From personal research, the only similar type of venture is usually set up miles from home and takes place in sometimes a venue nothing bigger that a garden outhouse.

    We need to remain professional and it seems that they guys at Burda / Tech Shop have done just that.

    Thanks for keeping fashion sewing in the public eye ad giving it that well needed fresh stance.

    My husband and I had thought about starting a business doing something similar. Kind of a sewing pub where people could drop in and sew a spell or take classes or just get together with other creative minds. Great merge!

    Ok, that does it! I am moving up North to S.F. away from my dreary little town that does not even want to start a Sewing Club…..I need some creative buddies.

    Wow, I wish we had something like this where I live. Of course, I live so far out in the boonies, the nearest city is over an hour away, and the nearest big city is over 3 hours away. Still, I’d travel to be able to be a part of something like this!
