Sew days are simple: we have a large room reserved, and a few hours before the meeting to get together to work on our individual projects. If you have something you're struggling with, there will likely be a member available to help. All are welcome. Bring whatever you're working on and get to know your fellow PhxMQG members. 

Packing for a sew day can be tricky.  Here's a retreat packing lists that may be of use:

  • Extension cord!

  • Sewing projects – precut projects work well but not required

  • Sewing Machine with cords, foot control and accessories, book and tools
