I am very excited to share news about a new organization in the Chicago area, Urban Threads Studio. They are a non-profit organization that hopes to use sewing and other textile arts as a means to strengthen the community. They are holding a free event this Wednesday, May 1st called the Mending Cafe. They are located at Bridgeport Art Center – Studio 5405, 1200 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL 60609.
Urban Threads Studio seems to have many interesting projects in the works, from free community workshops to summer camps to youth outreach programs. I am looking forward to supporting this new organization on Wednesday and learning more about their mission and vision.
If you like what you see, register for the Mending Cafe, check out their other workshops or share the news with others. I will be back to tell you more about Urban Threads Studio after I attend the workshop this week.
