SewPOP: Saturday, Sept 7 from 10AM-4PM
Preview Party: Friday, Sept 6 from 6-9PM
Catholic Charities of Tennessee's Sewing Training Academy set out in 2015 to train sewers to work in Nashville's burgeoning fashion and apparel industry.
But it's also become an incubator for entrepreneurs.
The work of some of those entrepreneurs, all graduates of the Sewing Training Academy, will be on display and for sale at the first SewPOP fundraiser to be held Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Imogene + Willie clothing store at 2601 12th Ave. S. in Nashville [from 10AM - 4PM].
At least 25 vendors are expected to participate at SewPOP, which will showcase hand-crafted products, such as camisoles, hats, robes, leather items, jackets and more.
"SewPOP will provide invaluable exposure for our talented students," explained Trishawna Quincy, the Sewing Training Academy's program coordinator and instructor. "We will have 25 exhibitors, who are at various points in their training. About half have already established their own micro-businesses; others will debut their businesses at SewPOP."
A special Opening Night Preview Party precedes the event on Friday, Sept. 6, featuring food trucks, drinks, music, and great networking opportunities for both the fashion and sewing communities.
