Birds of a Feather is for those who own vintage Singer Featherweight machines, other vintage machines, or simply have an interest in them. We meet the second Wednesday of the month at the Tri-Lakes Chamber Building on Second Street.
Open Sews are scheduled periodically to allow you to have uninterrupted sewing time and to get help and advice, if needed. Watch our FaceBook page for dates.
We offer both private and group lessons, for adults and children. Classes may be from a pattern or improvisational. And most of all WE LISTEN; we want your end result to make YOU happy. After all, it's your project.
We strive to bring you fabrics that inspire. It may be the colors, it may be the design, or even the hand of the fabric. (There's nothing like touching a high quality piece of fabric.)
The patterns we stock may be oldies but goodies, or something new and cutting edge. Either way, you can always be sure they are picked with you, our customer, in mind.
Our philosophy is to have a place for people to come to be inspired and to inspire others with similar interests:
Where someone who has been sewing for years can come and peruse the shelves and still find something new or just grab that much needed half yard or fabric and bolt (that's run, you don't have to buy the entire bolt, silly).
Or the new sewist can learn through coaching and encouragement and if desired, classes, private or group.
A Place where the next generation also learns, so our craft continues and thrives for generations.
And best of all, just stop to show us your latest project finished or not.
Notions are tried and true, as well as new to the market. The tried and true are chosen based on our experience as well as the recommendations of fellow sewists.
