Description

We’re proud to announce our 14th event will be held in Orlando, Florida between November 5th – 8th. This event is structured exactly like our past events in Seattle, Boston, New Orleans, Austin, Portland, and Salt Lake City. The weekend allows each attendee to have a weekend of uninterrupted time to cultivate their creative side with their sewing projects at the same time of getting with friends, old and new.
Before coming to the event, Sewtopia works with Windham Fabrics to selected 6 fabrics. A couple months before the event, we send every attendee six fat quarters. Participation is optional and 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. When attendees check – they’ll be asked to check in their projects to be eligible for 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. At the time of registration, we will ask whether you want to have a spot on the bus. The shops will offer special giveaways and sale prices to you as well. Shops will be announced close to the event date.

Sewtopia’s Sewing Lounge will be open Thursday, November 4th at 5pm and will close that night at midnight. It will reopen on Friday and Saturday at 8:00am to midnight. Sunday’s schedule will be 8:00am to noon.

Attendees will pick their seat on Thursday when it opens and will remain there for the weekend. If you’re brings 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 is yours to finish up projects or sightsee with friends.

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

In 2017, Sewtopia re-opened our online shop. We continue to update it with new Sewtopia merchandise, notions, and fabrics. We’re bring the show on the road and will be in the Sewing Lounge with new fabrics from Ruby Star Society, Figo Fabrics, Cloud 9, Cotton & Steel, Alexander Henry, Windham, and Robert Kaufman. Make sure when you’re packing for Sewtopia, to leave some room to bring a lot of goodies home!

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.
