About Us

We are a sewing group in the inner north suburb of Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia.  The group was founded in 1996 when a group of Somali women decided they needed sewing classes.  Almost 20 years later, this special group of sewers and crafters meet twice a week almost every week of the year.  The group now warmly welcomes women and children of all faiths and cultures.

Everyone is important at the Multicultural Women's Sewing Group and they come for all kinds of reasons: 

  • To learn and teach machine sewing and other crafts. 
  • To make and mend things such as clothes, household items, nappies, gifts or protest banners! 
  • To practice English. 
  • To learn about one another. 
  • To enjoy one another's children.

Multicultural Women's Sewing Group welcomes donations. We are always in need of preloved crafty materials, fabric, patterns, equipment and books. 
Monetary donations go directly to operating costs such as the facilitator wages.  

For a limited time, tax deductible donations can be made through the Australian Cultural Fund

Alternatively, please contact us to discuss other ways of donating.
