Second Ever Nashville Sew-Biz Meet & Greet

If you're in the middle Tennessee area working in the sewing industry in any capacity - or wish to be - you are invited to join us at SouthStar on Sunday, December 2, 4-6 p.m., for our second ever Nashville Sew-Biz Meet & Greet.

"In any capacity" covers everything including designing, patternmaking, cutting, sewing, finishing, altering, upholstering, teaching, marketing, supplying - you name it. Whether you own a business or you are your own business or you work for someone else or you're just learning. The more folks who come and meet each other, the more everyone and the local industry profits.

At our last party a couple of years ago, we had a messenger bag maker with decades of experience in the luggage industry, a celebrity clothing designer with his own retail shop, a high-end women's clothing designer who sells her creations through a network of independent boutiques, an independent patternmaker, an independent contract sewer who was a factory manager in her native country before emigrating to the U.S., owners of a local sewing factory, a used sewing machine distributor, and several others. Everyone got a chance to tell the whole group about themselves and then there was time to chat afterwards. It made for great networking and a good time among like-minded people, and we hope it will be even bigger and better this year.

We'll provide the snacks and refreshments, you provide your own valuable self!

Please let us know you're coming by emailing us to

Our address is 233 Oceola Avenue, Nashville, 37209. There's plenty of parking.

We look forward to seeing you here!!
