All Day Sew March 19th

What could be better than having eight straight hours to sew alongside your PMQG pals?


So plan to come sew with us Saturday March 19 from 9am-5pm. We'll be in a big well-lit room at TaborSpace at 5441 SE Belmont Street in close-in Southeast Portland. If you're not familiar with this part of town, it's very accessible: just a few minutes drive from our downtown monthly meeting location, with easy parking. Venue change! We'll be at Fabric Depot, 700 Southeast 122nd Avenue in southeast Portland.

The sewing day is FREE to members! If you're not a member but you'd like to join us, you can come for just $10.

What to bring:

  • Your project and sewing machine (don't forget the pedal, cord and machine feet!)
  • A power strip or extension cord if you have one.
  • Sewing tools. We will provide a couple ironing boards and irons and a couple of cutting mats but the rest is up to you! Remember rulers, rotary cutters, scissors, thread and pins! Consider labelling common items so they don't get mistaken for someone else's.
  • Drinks and snacks as desired.

Food and drink will be available in the adjacent cafe, as well as within walking distance at Caldera restaurant.

Please help us plan and set up appropriately by RSVPing to if you're planning to come. We can't wait to spend a day enjoying laughter and the happy hum of sewing machines!


  1. This sounds fun!! I'm putting it on my calendar! Thanks for organizing!

  2. I am putting it in my book. I can walk there!

  3. Count me in, please! Sounds like great fun, sounds like a great space (I googled it), and I already know everyone who'll be attending is great! Thanks for setting this up!!

  4. Totally off topic - just had to say I love, love, LOVE the crispy fresh new look of the PMQG blog!!! Very modern and cool. Just like us.

  5. Sounds like too much fun to miss ... count me in :-)

  6. sounds awesome! I hope to make it over for at least a couple of hours for sure :)

  7. I'll be there with some baked goods in tow! I'm thinking Pink Peppercorn Espresso brownies for some feisty ladies and an afternoon of productive laughing... I mean sewing:)

  8. I'm totally there! With a tasty treat. What a wonderful, fun idea!

  9. I can't go! :(

    Will we plan another one soon?? I haven't been able to make it to either of the all-day sewing events.

  10. Fabric Depot is my happy place. I'm seriously excited. If you aren't already signed up for their mailers sign up for the emails before Saturday. That way you get a printable 40% off coupon good for one item (or by the yard cut) I don't think I ever leave there without at least 10 things besides the one I go for!

  11. I'm going to try to make it... have a lot going on so it might not be till the afternoon ~ hope to see you all down there!
    Thanks for organizing!!
