Topstitch Makers Sewcial Community

About Us

Our mission is to help you get better at sewing and support your journey along the way! At Topstitch Makers you are not alone as you learn and grow your sewing practice. Here you will connect with fellow sewists, improve your sewing skills through monthly themes, sewalongs, live talks, sewcial sesssions, courses and you'll become part of a thriving online indie garment sewing community through this dynamic collaborative engagement.

What's Coming up?

Here's what we have coming up! 

Our live sessions are currently over zoom so you can attend no matter where you live, if the time suits your schedule! Most will only require fabric, a pattern and basic sewing supplies. Talks, Sewcial sessions, access to additional courses are part of the general community membership. 

Live instructor guided Sewalongs and Workshops are part of the second tier membership plan which includes the general community + sewalongs and workshops.
