Sewtopia + Juki

Sewtopia is partnering with Juki and will be providing (50) sewing machines for attendees to use (first come, first serve). Stay tuned for online promotions with machines from Sewtopia as well.



Throughout the weekend, Sewtopia will offer up sewing challenges to inspire your creativity and there will be prizes. After you register, we’ll email your more information on what the challenges will be. Participation is not required. Sewtopia has teamed up with Michael Miller Fabrics to do a fabric challenge.


Shop Hop

The best part of getting together for the weekend is letting us take you to the best fabric and quilt stores in the area. A shop hop is like a pub crawl, only you’re shopping instead of drinking. At the time of registration we will ask whether you want to have a spot on the bus. There will be prizes and games on the bus. The shops will offer special giveaways and sale prices to you as well.


Sewing lounge

Sewtopia’s Sewing Lounge will be open Thursday November 8, 2018 at 5pm and will close that night at midnight. It will reopen on Friday and Saturday at 8am to midnight. Sunday’s schedule will be 8am to noon.

If you’re bringing a machine or items, don’t worry about carrying them back to your room — we’ll lock up every night for you. This time is yours to finish up WIPs or start items for the holiday.

General notions will be provided. Irons, cutting mats, rotary cutters, even thread!


Pop Up Shop




Sewtopia will do one official secret swap that attendees can participate in. This is a blind swap, meaning we will not assign you a partner. We ask that that you bring your swap item WRAPPED to the event at check-in and Sewtopia will distribute swap gifts Friday night to open Saturday morning. If you bring an item to swap you get one back.

Smalls Swap | #sewtopiaswap


  • If you’re on Instagram, please use this hashtag so others can cheer you on and support your creative process.
  • Money limit is $15, don’t break the bank!
  • Bring your swap item wrapped to Sewtopia.
  • Make sure there’s something saying who it’s from like a label or a slip of paper.
  • Smalls category would be anything smaller than a 24×24 pillow or mini, mug rug, pin cushion, something for a sewing area, or a pouch.
  • Make something that you love, out of fabrics you adore.
  • The folks of Sewtopia will do the secret swap Friday night after the sewing lounge closes. The swap items will be at your sewing station for Saturday morning for you to open.
  • Don’t worry if you don’t do the swap. We will hand out swap gifts only to those who participated.
  • If you have any questions, email me and I’ll collect them all in a FAQs email to everyone.
