Area crafters bond at ‘Sew Desperate’ in Washougal
Anna Davis starts venture that provides space to complete craft projects
Tuesday, November 6, 2012
A local woman has developed a space for crafters, scrappers and sewers to work on their creations for a day or two at a time.Anna Davis, of Washougal, spent Sunday with her sister Linda Hinsvark, of Scappoose, Ore., and other friends at “Sew Desperate” — a place with no guys, kids or TVs.
Davis rents the space at 1324 "E" St., Washougal, and provides tables and chairs for crafters to complete their various projects on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The cost to craft there is $15 per person, per day.
In the past, the women worked on their craft projects once a month at various rented locations throughout the year.
"All the ladies here have been together for five years," said Barbara York, of Washougal. "I love it. It's a place I can spread out. At home, I'm bothered by the phone and laundry. Here, it's truly very relaxing. It's hard to spread out this much in your own living room."
