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.

    ASG joins with Specialty Pleaters once again, to bring you this AUSSEW-Along.

    Last time it was a circular skirt; this time it's a simpler version - a straight piece of fabric pleated into a yoke.

    ASG Members - Free

    Non-members - $25.00


    A supply list will be emailed to you on Monday, 6th July.   Instructions will be sent to you at regular intervals over the following 8 weeks.


    UPDATE:  Due to the Covid-19 lockdown in Victoria, Specialty Pleaters has been forced to temporarily close shop.  Rado Pleating in Sydney has stepped into the breach.

    While you wait for your fabric to be returned to you, check out the video on our NEWS page which shows the pleating process.

    Leaving the cooler months behind, it's time to start sewing for Spring and Summer.  The oh-so-simple Harvest Top from Peppermint Magazine is our pattern of choice.  The design lines present lots of options for use of colour, patterns, plains, trims...endless possibilities.
