Like really...It's our fourth Brunch and Sew. I can't believe it. I never expected Brunch and Sew to just take off and get the response it has. After I came down from a little high, I sat down with Kim of KP Fusion to talk Brunch and Sew.
How did you get into sewing? How has it affected your life?
+ I began sewing while pregnant with my daughter. I did not like any of the maternity options so I decided I would make my own. I didn't see this astronomical growth until I lost my dad. Sewing was an escape. It was my only way of grieving positively. Now, it's my way of expressing myself, helping others and providing a life for my daughter and I
What made you decide to launch Brunch + Sew workshops? How did you come up with the concept?
I love nostalgia. When I created Brunch and Sew I wanted it to remind women of the old sewing groups but make it very modern. I came up with the concept while driving. I'm always thinking of something new to do. Something forward thinking. Something that will help women and foster a creative community.
What can attendees expect to learn/ takeaway?
+ Expect to take away giggles. Expect to take away a full tummy lol. Most importantly, they can expect to take away a skill set they can cherish forever.
What are different ways that people can use their newfound sewing skills?
+ Oh my.. You can make your own wardrobe like me. Your kids clothes, make your own home interior treatments like drapes. Sewing can be used in soooooo many ways.
Your December workshop is sold out-when's the next one?
Do you offer private lessons?
Yes I do. I know some people are intimidated by learning in large groups. Private lessons are a great way to get one on one instruction. All class info and upcoming workshops are on the website.
We take so much pride in growing each Brunch and Sew. Every month it grows, more women come out to play with us, and we partner with more entrepreneurs and businesses to capture a great experience.
I want to take the time to express my gratitude to all of the partners and collaborators on the event.
