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.

    This month we team with ASG Industry Partner Liz Haywood, to bring you a zero-waste challenge.

    Make this compact backpack from a rectangle of fabric with nothing left over!  Make if from a very light weight fabric, such as ripstop, and it will fold down small enough to fit into the palm of your hand.

    Liz offers you a 20% discount on the pattern.
