On Saturday drop in for a squiz and some bubbles or tea between 3pm and 6pm or come anytime between 10am and 6pm on Sunday for some Social Sewing fun!

Bring along an unfinished sewing project or something to fix or alter and sit and stitch with us for a bit. We will provide sewing machines, overlockers, advice and sewing tips. There will be cake and scintillating conversation with like-minded sewists!

Gaye Abandon at the Maribyrnong Makers Market this Saturday 18th June!

Come and visit Gaye Abandon at the Maribyrnong Makers Market in Seddon this Saturday for a rare chance to pick up some signature upcycled, felted wool, arm warmers and hottie covers. This is the only market that we will be participating in this year, and with textiles, it’s always nice to touch and try before you buy. We will also have a range of discontinued Gaye Abandon products including purses, tablemats and coasters ON SALE! Gaye will be on hand to help you with your winter needs and to fill you in on forthcoming workshops and classes at her new School of Sewing and Upcycling !

The MMM is a not-for-profit market run by a group of dedicated volunteers intent on promoting the talents of makers living in and around Melbourne’s inner west. Buy local and handmade!
