This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!

Our Go + Sew posts feature upcoming modern sewing retreats and conferences so you can plan ahead to attend an event. This one is a little different because you actually stay in the comfort of your own home! Although The Sewing Party is an online event we feel it has some of the hallmarks of a good “Go + Sew” retreat like opportunities to “chat” with new sewing friends and knowledgeable instructors. We like to keep you up to date on the latest opportunities for learning and sewing!

UPDATE: We have FIVE passes to The Sewing Party to give away. Tell us: Which class are you most interested in taking?
