Featherweight Fellowships, Clubs and Sew Alongs

Join the Featherweight Shop staff (and all those who wrap your packages with a little ric-rac bow...) for a regular, monthly quilting sew-along.  We are now gathering on the last Thursday of every month, but continue reading for more information about a "Featherweight Fellowship"!

In light of our regular Featherweight Shop Sew Along, we have created this central location for all members and friends of the Featherweight community to connect and find one another worldwide, but still within their own local area.  Now you can join us... virtually!  Don't forget to join us on Instagram with the following hashtags:  #featherweightshopsewalong, #featherweightsewdate, #featherweightfellowship, #featherweightfriends

Featherweight Shop Sew Along

  1. Do you currently have a Featherweight Fellowship, Club or group sew along meeting already?
    If you are currently hosting or will be hosting a Featherweight Fellowship Group, or if you belong to an existing group, then please email us with the information requested below, and we will add it to the list so that Featherweight friends in your area can reach out to you and make contact!  Please Note:  Due to the nature of the internet, it is best to provide contact info that can be made public.
  2. Start a Featherweight Fellowship local to your area.
    Donna Hoover of Timber Villa Quilts in Pennsylvania chartered a few notes and forms for getting a local Featherweight Fellowship started.  She has graciously shared those with us and we have made them available below, edited only slightly so that you could customize them to your style and geographic location.
