We started a series of programs we call “Sew-Alongs.” What is a Sew-Along?  It is kind of like a sewing bee where a group of sewing enthusiasts get together and work on the same kind of project.  

The Fiber Arts Studio 'Sewing Programming Committee' selected some popular clothing patterns. People who want to participate will purchase their own pattern, fabric, and notions required to make the garment. Then, we will meet and work together to make the chosen garment. 

This January Sew-Along  is the Kochi KimonoA boxy cropped jacket for any season.

Make it in wool for winter or linen for summer, the pattern has three variations and provides plenty of options.

Features optional lining, 3/4 sleeves, drop shoulder, side seam splits, tie front and front patch pockets.
