success depends on volunteers. If you think you would like to join our
team of teachers, classroom assistants, retail staff, and advisors –
or offer some other kind of help – contact us and tell us a little
about your interests and talents.
To volunteer in our store, you must be able to commit to at least two
shifts (3 or 4 hours per shift) a month. A weekly commitment is preferred.
Newcomers get lots of training.
Teachers and classroom assistants must have some knowledge of machine
sewing, and we provide training specific to our classes. If you have an
idea for a class you would like to design and teach, please let us know.
Prep night are an excellent way to lend a hand, without making a regular
commitment. On the first and fourth Monday of every month, we meet from
6:30 to 8:30 pm to prepare materials for the store or classes. You can
help iron, measure, and cut fabric; wind yarn; string buttons –
whatever is needed – while socializing with others who enjoy sewing
and knitting. Just contact us to let us know you’re coming.
