Product Description

We’re proud to announce our 17th event will be held from November 2nd - 5th in Nashville, Tennessee. Like our past events in Palm Springs, Orlando, Seattle, Boston, New Orleans, Austin, Portland, and Salt Lake City, this open sew weekend allows each attendee to have a weekend of uninterrupted time to cultivate their creative side with their sewing projects while socializing with friends, old and new.
Prior to the event, Sewtopia works with Windham Fabrics to select 6 fabrics for our Fabric Challenge. A couple months before the event, every attendee will receive six fat quarters. Participation is optional for the Fabric Challenge but encouraged. The rules of the challenge are simple, you can use one or all the fabrics, just make sure that you only use Windham Fabrics with your creation. During check in attendees will be asked to submit their projects to be eligible for ribbons and prizes.
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. More information will be released as we get closer to the event as well as confirmation of participation.

Sewtopia’s Sewing Lounge will be open Thursday, November 2nd at 5pm and will close at midnight. It will reopen on Friday and Saturday at 8:00am and close at midnight. Sunday's hours will be 8:00am to noon.

Attendees will be contacted prior to the event regarding seating, we will assign you a table and table groups based off of your seating requests. If you’re bringing a machine or items don’t worry about carrying them back to your room – Sewtopia and the hotel will lock the main ballroom each night. This time is yours to finish up projects or sightsee with friends.

General tools will be provided in the sewing room like irons, cutting mats, and rotary cutters.

In 2017, Sewtopia opened our online shop then our brick & mortar in December 2020. We continue to stock the shop with new Sewtopia merchandise, notions, and fabrics. We're bringing the shop on the road with a small but mighty pop up full of new fabrics from Ruby Star Society, Figo Fabrics, Cloud 9, Alexander Henry, Windham, Robert Kaufman & more. Make sure to leave some extra room to bring a lot of goodies home!

Sewtopia will do one official swap that attendees can participate in. This is a blind swap, meaning we will not assign you a partner. If you bring an item to swap you get one back. This swap isn't meant to be stressful, but please be thoughtful with the effort and skill you put into your HANDMADE gift.
