This is a hand stitching day retreat, started for participants in the #dutchtreatsewalong as shared on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Most participants are completing blocks from the book "Dutch Treat" by Judy Garden, but all hand stitching is welcome.
There is space for 8 around the table in the Meerkat Shweshwe studio.
There is no formal teaching and the fee is for a catered lunch.
Do you need to pre-wash Shweshwe?
Shweshwe is a heritage product still made the same as in the industrial revolution. It requires a pre-wash before cutting and sewing.
Just soak your fabric in warm water and hang it out to dry. Plain and simple. No detergents or washing machine required.
You may do a subsequent rinse in lukewarm salty water if you choose.
