Clothing & Textile Advisors

If you enjoy textiles and fibers, love to create and collect, and love to learn and share your knowledge, this group is for you!

The Clothing & Textile Advisors (CTAs) are a long-standing volunteer group located in Pierce, Kitsap, Snohomish, Lewis, and Franklin-Benton counties in Washington. Each group provides educational and charitable activities in their communities throughout the year, sharing their love of all things sewing with adults and youth. During the year, the CTAs offer sewing classes for adults and youth that provide foundational sewing skills, as well as more advanced skills such as tailoring and pattern alteration.

The CTAs are the backbone of the Sewing & Stitchery Expo–they distribute the brochures you read, fill your ticket orders, and staff the classrooms at the Expo, and always with a smile.

CTAs are lifelong learners. They learn from the experts at the Expo as well as from each other. Monthly meetings provide learning opportunities from guest instructors, opportunities to share completed projects, and a chance to be with others that share your love of all things sewing.
