In the tradition of old-time quilting and sewing circles, join us at The Factory the first and third Tuesday of each month to sew and socialize. Spend the morning working on your latest project in the company of fellow sewers, while sharing inspiration, encouragement, fellowship, and maybe even a bit of light-hearted gossip. (It is speculated that the phrase “chew the rag” originated from the gossiping that took place while ladies worked together in a sewing circle.)

Coffee, tea, and lunch (after 11:00am) will be available for purchase from The Factory Café. Please bring your own fabric and sewing notions or find them in The School of Making store.

For more information, contact our workshop coordinator at workshops (at) or call +1.256.760.1090.

    I concur with Hillary; you should be getting subsidies from the Florence Tourist Board (and if no such entity exists, I believe you are it). I will stitch at home, in Canada, in solidarity.
