What’s happening at AUSSEW?


Our Social Sewing Groups around Australia are the heart of the Guild. Each group meets on a regular basis and this is where friendships develop and thrive. In addition to these meetings, other special events are a highlight of our annual calendar – retreats, workshops, on-line sew-alongs, conventions, fabric shopping tours and more.

You don’t have to be a member to attend a special event, but you will not be eligible for the discounted fees given to members.  We hope you enjoy yourself enough to join AUSSEW.
