Where RETRO meets MOD: SEWBOTS is a NEW club geared toward modern quilts with throwback style. We’ll dial in on 3 quilt projects and meet for an atomically powered sew day once a month, January through December 2023! Join for 6 months or all 12 depending on the projects you’re interested in. SEWBOTS are an intermediate group of modern sewists ready to accelerate through projects that are anything but obsolete!

Every 4th Saturday, a monthly demo will begin at 10am then we will sew the day away together at the Schoolhouse until 5pm. Enjoy sewing with a network of friends who appreciate nostalgia as we rewind each month for a flash of the past and fast-forward with the most up-to-date quilting techniques.

For each project, you may choose to purchase the kit for 15% off (as reflected below) or you may purchase the pattern only and choose your own fabrics (also 15% off). We also encourage stash busting to make your Sewbots projects truly your own. Contact the shop to prepay for your kit once you have registered for the club.

2 Projects for July - Dec 2023 Session:

Turntable Time Machine Using the Classic Curves Ruler we'll cut and sew large curved pieces with improv flair! You'll create a retro/modern quilt that resembles records or in true improv style, you can turn your blocks into whatever you like. Finished project size may vary -- that's half the fun!

SEWBOTS Club Kit Price: $104  (reg. $121.99)
Includes Classic Curves Ruler and a selection of Circular Logic fat quarters by Uppercase for Windham as shown below for piecing blocks and a "groovy" (think vinyl) black and grey stripe for binding.

October-December: MOD TV by Colourwerx 
We’ll pop the new Ruby Star Society Panel into MOD TV blocks for a cool spin on this unique quilt that is made using a “liberated slash and stitch” sewing method. Finished quilt 48” x 54”

SEWBOTS Club Kit Price: $ TBA when panel and coordinating fabrics are released May 2023. Proceeds from the panel included in this kit will go toward the Jed Foundation for suicide prevention among teens and young adults. Cool, right?! Quilt will be similar to the example shown below courtesy of Kim Dev @istitch_iquilt though colors may vary some to match the new panel. I want to get your input in class!
