Sew to Survive a Zombie Attack!

What will you do when zombies attack? Are you prepared to sew for survival?


If you're not exactly prepared for the coming of the zombies, especially where basic sewing is involved, you need to attend Sew to Survive a Zombie Attack!

At this event you will learn what an actual zombie attack might mean for you, and how to start preparing – including learning some basic survival sewing skills. Starting with your own Stitch or die! needle book stocked with sewing needles and pins, we’ll cover hand sewing basics from the right way to sew on a button to basic stitches to help you start sewing for survival.

You will also learn the absolute necessities for putting together a basic emergency sewing kit, exactly how to pack it up, and how those fancy little pre-packaged sewing kits will fail you when it comes to survival.

Of course we’ll also discuss zombie survival tactics as we sew up a basic survival skill sampler, so come prepared with zombie survival strategy tips to share or your questions that we’ll try to answer! And we’ll put your new sewing skills to task by taking a discarded t-shirt...

...and transforming it into a sturdy carry-all, perfect for toting anything and everything.

Carry All Recycled T-Shirt

The handy carry-all can be folded into a small lightweight package, perfect for when you're travelling light! Oh, and these are also great to use for recycled grocery totes, you know, while you're waiting for Z-Day to come.

And if you're looking to learn even more about zombies, survival, and sewing, never fear - you'll leave with a handout full of resources! Oh, and depending on where this even is held, we may even take a break and share a zombie snack!
