Bib & Tucker Sew-op was founded in 2010 by friends Lillis Taylor and Annie Bryant who met at a Birmingham Quilters Guild meeting. Lillis went through the 9-week #CO.STARTERS program at Create Birmingham in Birmingham, AL because she and Annie wanted to empower, educate, and create economic opportunities through the art of sewing for anyone! Bib & Tucker Sew-op has about 25 members who get together weekly for sewing and quilting classes with a membership fee for only $5 a month. They also have several programs for the public designed to promote sewing activities. The non-profit is funded through grants and charitable contributions.
