Member-hosted Social Sewing days

We offer one or two social sewing sessions per month that take place on a Saturday or Sunday. These sessions are hosted by members who contribute their time voluntarily. Social Fabric members can join these sessions for free, exchange ideas about projects, and help each other with technical skills. There are a maximum of ten spots available for each social sewing session. Please register for the social sewing session you would like to attend. Not a Social Fabric member yet?

We will organise custom workshops on topics of interest, for four or more people.  Email us with your ideas, and to ask about possible dates.

Fabric Shops in Zurich

We have a small selection of organic and sustainable textiles in our atelier, but we can also recommend a few other fabric shops in Zurich:

Stofftrucke (Löwenstrasse 2, 8001 Zürich, 1. Stock)  has a big assortment of fabrics at fair prices.

Bernina (Talacker 35, 8001 Zürich) sells sewing machines, patterns, thread, an a small selection of fabrics.

Apropos (Hohlstrasse 201, 8004 Zürich) sells a variety of special fabrics, but usually at a relatively high price.

Faybee is an online shop, mostly for organic jersey. The owner is one of our neighbours in Binz.
