Sew Cool! SFO's History of Sewing Exhibit

Sew Cool! SFO's History of Sewing Exhibit

You don’t have to be a domestic goddess – or know a needle from a thread – to appreciate SFO’s new exhibit, Threading the Needle: Sewing in the Machine Age. 

New Classes at Workshop SF: Sewing Handbags, Altering Jeans, Beauty School Rebel, Screen Printing, DIY Feather Jewelry + More

If you've never been, you can think of Workshop SF as a DIY/design lover's Chuck E. Cheese academy. The Etsy-meets-rock-n-roll lab is quietly nestled in Western Addition, and is fueled with the creative innovation of founder, Kelly Malone (SF's DIY do-gooder). The space is the perfect learning environment for all levels of hands-on DIYers, and the hip roster of workshops offer everything but your mom's home-ec class. 

This August, Workshop is focusing on fun, stylish classes like the Blue Jean Rehab and Makeup Mastery: Smokey Eyes + Nude Lips. Every class is under $60 (most are $40), and they are conveniently held on evenings and weekends. Anyone can get in on the maker movement, just start with these awesome classes. 

Peapod Fabrics: Small Size, Great Selection

We profess that Britex is to die for, but that doesn't mean we want to go there all that often. Why? Well first of all it kind of sucks you into a vortex and spits you out a few hours later with a lot less money and no idea where the time went. Second of all it's downtown. If we're looking for a guaranteed pretty and well-curated selection of fabric that is priced moderately, we'll head to Peapod Fabrics. The tiny Inner Sunset store has beautiful cotton prints and European linen in a range of choices that won't take half of your day to comb through.
