SEW Saturday Event Details
Saturday 17th October

Blog / 29 September 2015

With just a few weeks to go until the SEW Saturday Event on Saturday 17th October, I wanted to fill you in on all the fun stuff that will be happening in the shop that day!

If you haven’t heard about the event yet in the sewing press, it’s a national campaign organised by SEW magazine. Lots of lovely bricks and mortar fabric shops have signed up to celebrate real life fabric shops - just like us!

Shopping online is great if you know what you want or have seen it somewhere before, but there is nothing like being able to browse, stroke all the fabric and get new ideas and inspiration – that’s what real like fabric shops offer and that’s what the day is celebrating.

We are going to have an open studio with lots of fun activities going on….

Make and Take Workshops with Kate

Pop –in anytime between 10am and 4pm, no need to book, to make a cute little project! Perfect for all ages and abilities (children under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult).

Choose from......

  • a really cute bird pincushion with a secret needle holder in his tale!

  • Fun little hair clips

  • A little fishy key ring

  • And a mini pom pom bracelet, necklace or desk garland

All projects cost £4 which includes all material along with a template and instructions to take home. Payable in cash on the day - no booking needed. Each project will take approximatly 45mins - 1 hour depending on your prior level of ability.

Find Your Next Dressmaking Project

Browse our extensive garment sample rail and get inspiration for your new project. One of our team will be on hand to help you pick a new project, check your measurements and advise on the best size to make along with any fitting adjustments that may be needed.

Sewing Gadgets Demonstrations

Test out some of the sewing gadgets that we use in the studio, from silicone finger guards, chaco liners, wonder tape and bias binding makers to quick and easy pom pom makers.

And of course the tea will be on tap and the cake stacked high!

There will also be lots of special offers in the shop and we have just had a shops change around with new shelfing and new displays so if you haven't popped in for a while there is lots to see and catch up on!

Hope you can join us for this special day!
