The inaugural g&g Easter egg hunt and demo day
all the event details for Saturday 15th April

Blog / 24 March 2017

With the day light saving time change on the horizon, and the gorgeous fresh spring window display that was installed last week, things are certainly feeling bright and breezy in the shop these days!

And on that note, I'm really excited to announce the details of our next g&g event - The g&g easter egg hunt and sewing demo day!

With a fun mini easter egg hunt around Moseley village, make and take workshops for kids, FREE sewing demonstrations for the adults and tea and cake - there is something for everyone!

The Easter egg hunt

I used to love a good easter egg hunt as a child, so for something a bit different we thought we'd have our own one this year!

Once you have picked up your FREE 'egg hunt sheet' from the shop, you'll follow clues to find the g&g eggs around Moseley - all within short walking distance of the shop!

Then report back your findings to get an easter treat! There will be discounts and prizes for those who manage to find all the eggs!

This activity will run from 10am-3.30pm and is suitable for accompanied children and adults.

The kids make and take workshops

Throughout the day we will be running short make and take workshops for kids over 6 years old to hand sew an easter decoration. Price is £5 a head and includes a materials pack.

Each project should take about an hour to make. Spaces in the studio are limited to 8 at a time. No booking required, spaces are available on a first come first served basis. If its busy when you arrive you can always take part in the egg hunt first.

This activity will run from 10am with last entry at 3pm and is suitable for accompanied children aged 6 and over.

The FREE Sewing Demonstrations

We know you love getting new tips on sewing and dressmaking techniques and our previous demo days have proved really popular so we wanted to offer them again.

These are free to attend and will take place in the studio, there will be some seats but it is mostly standing room.

This is our demo timetable for the day, feel free to pop along to the ones you like best or stick around for them all!

12.30pm-1pm - Top tips for sewing with jersey fabric on a regular sewing machine and attaching a neckband

1.15pm-1.45pm - Using overlocker and coverstitch machine for sewing stretchy fabric

2pm-2.30pm - Top tricks for easy dressmaking - quick zip insertion and easy measuring

2.45pm-3.15pm - Top tools for easy dressmaking - simple gadgets to give your garments a professional finish

And of course, any g&g event wouldn't be complete without tea, cake and our homemade lemonade. This will be available from 10am in the studio!

Hope to see you there!
