Clothing & Textile Advisors

If you enjoy textiles and fibers, love to create and collect, and want 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 that provide foundational sewing skills, as well as more advanced techniques such as tailoring and pattern alteration.

The CTAs are the backbone of the Sewing & Stitchery Expo — they distribute the class catalogs you read, fill your ticket orders, and staff the classrooms at the Expo, 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 who share your love of all things sewing.
