Do you have Sewing Machines?

There are sewing machines at multiple locations that anyone in the community can use. Blueprint is drop-in, call ahead to book at other locations so we can have a machine set up for you in the Library. Bring your fabric and thread along.

At Blueprint we have a number of sewing machines, two overlockers and a quilting machine that can be used during Blueprint opening hours. We maintain the machines and fix any issues that may crop up as you use them but we are (as yet) unable to provide training in how to sew.

Supergrans Manawatū offer sewing lessons throughout the year for a small koha donation.
