Frugal Weekend Activities in the DMV

A few activities for a fun frugal weekend. I will post a few additional garage and estate sales later tomorrow but I wanted to get these out there early for you to add them to your calendar. I plan to stop by the first two and will be hosting the last one on Sunday. If you live in the DC, MD or VA area come join us!

Part 2 of a 4 part series on Refashioning and Restyling your wardrobe


This Meetup is designed to inspire ideas and discuss creative solutions to your wardrobe challenges. All sewing levels are welcome to join this class. Everyone should plan to bring no more than 3 items that need alterations, refashioning or restyling. We will discuss next steps and review some of the progress other students have made in the class. Please arrive early so that we can make the most of our time. Registration is still open and everyone in the meetup group is invited to attend. Just click the link below and join our class.

We hope everyone who attended the first class will return to show the progress they have made on their projects. Later today on my blog I will be featuring Heather’s latest project. You will want to check it out. She did a fabulous job. Lily completed her restyle as well. Check out her finished project out @ Lily’s project

Xtine, Cici, Kanisa, Telisa and Serena we want to see your finished projects on Sunday :-).

Do you have a skirt, jacket, dress or pair of pants in your closet that needs a hem or a button and needs to be fixed so that you can put it back into your wardrobe rotation?  Then this class is for you. Bring in a few items and we will figure out solutions. If you need to learn how to sew on a button or replace a hem in your pants or skirt bring it with you. If you have a jacket where the sleeves are too short or too long or a skirt you would like to shorten this is the class for you. We will learn quick and easy solutions as well as long term fixes to various wardrobe malfunctions 🙂

Please bring matching thread, scissors, pins and a sewing needle. Sewing Machine is optional

Happy Sewing!
