External Workshops

The Common Thread facilitates sewing workshops at schools, organisations, and events.

We have a mobile kit of 5 domestic sewing machines, as well as tools, fabrics, notions, and patterns, that we bring to lead a 2-4 hour workshop. Two of our artisan members are present to teach participants. Depending on the event, we can either guide participants in the creation of a specific project during the workshop, or assist participants with self-directed projects.

Want the Common Thread to facilitate a sewing workshop at your organisation or event? Contact us at  info@thecommonthreadmtl.ca.
