Garment Sewing Group

We’re meeting in person for September and October. Please feel free to wear masks at any time.

Our Tuesday meetings are now on the second Wednesday of each month.

We’ve started “Garment Sewing Group on the Go” to expose ourselves to other stores. Supporting the local garment fabric stores seems even more important after our year of Covid online shopping.

Lakes Makerie was our first “On the Go” venue and we’ll be at the Sewing Lounge for September. October will find us at Ginny’s in Rochester.

We’re only trying this with our Wednesday meeting. Thursday will continue to meet at First Sewing and may go to SR Harris periodically. Saturday will remain at Treadle. This is NOT a permanent location change, just an exploration of local resources 🙂

For the month of September our meetings will be:

Wednesday, September 8, 10:30 at The Sewing Lounge, 587 Selby Av., St. Paul, MN

Thursday, September 9, at 10:30 at First Sewing, 7985 Southtown Center, Bloomington

Saturday, September 11, 10:30 at Treadle Yard Goods, 1338 Grand Ave., St. Paul

October meetings:

Saturday, October 9, 10:30 at Treadle Yard Goods, 1338 Grand Av., St. Paul

Wednesday, October 13, 10:30 at Ginny’s Fine Fabrics, 211 Broadway Av. S., Rochester, MN

Thursday, October 14, 10:30 at First Sewing, 7985 Southtown Center, Bloomington

Garment Sewing Group is a monthly meeting featuring garments, pattern modification and review, and the latest news in the sewing world. You will be provided with tips, techniques and new ideas that are sure to inspire you. Current fashion, chic wear, proper fit, and children’s wear are some of the topics we will explore. Whether you are an experienced sewist (and you’ve been quilting while waiting for something like this:) or just beginning – this club is for you! Bring Show and Tell for a chance to win a door prize.
You may attend any scheduled Group meeting during the month in which you have paid. Group meetings will only be cancelled in extreme cases (bad weather, no electricity…).

Fee for Garment Sewing Group is $10. Your first meeting is free!
Please register/pay using the buttons below. You may attend one or all meetings in a month and only pay for one.

  1. Hello,

    Sorry I don’t see a contact us. I plan on taking the Serger class at Treadle in September. I do not currently own a serger, but have figured out that I need one for the type of fabrics that I would like to sew.
    Are there certain brands and models that you recommend?
    Do you recommend a machine with the cover chain stitch or one where you need to buy that separately?
    A pricier machine it fine, as long as the quality lives up the tag 🙂



  2. I have a 10 yr old daughter who loves to see loves fashion I would like to get her into a class where they can help her strengthen her talent. She has taken 1 class and does own a sewing machine but I have no clue how to teach her to use or how to sew


    1. Taylor,
      We’d be very happy to have your daughter join one of our classes for school age sewists.
      We have an ongoing class on Thursdays from 4:30-6 at JoAnn Fabrics in Edina or one of our four session classes at Treadle Yard Goods in St. Paul.
      Please email me at and we can get specifics taken ccare of.
      Thanks for your interest!
