For those of you in or near Wendover, Deb of PlainSitch and I are putting out a call to all you creative types to come and join us at the brand new Wendover Sewing Bee! We constantly hear about people doing amazing things on their own who want to get together with like-minded people. Well here's your chance. If you have been sewing for years, a short period of time or it's something you've always wanted to get into but haven't known where to start, come along and see what it's all about.
It will be separate from the classes at Fabric HQ or Deb's longer quilting classes. It's a place to get together with like-minded people and sew, chat and drink tea (with the odd cake courtesy of Rachel thrown in to keep up your creative stamina!) A couple of hours for you without the every day distractions of home or work competing for your attention and giving you that frustrated sewing feeling.
As inspiring as The Great British Sewing Bee has been (and there are some great tutorials from Judge May Martin here, by the way), we want ours to be more than just a clothes making gathering. Any sewing project you have, you can bring along - it'll be the perfect chance to finish all of those UFOs (Un-Finished Objects!) you've got lying around. You can ask advice and swap ideas as well as be inspired by what others are working on. What could be better? And I for one am relishing the opportunity to have a couple of hours a month dedicated sewing time - with so much else going on, it's a rarity these days!
When: Monthly, starting Tuesday May 7th 9-11am
Where: St Anne's Hall, Aylesbury Road, Wendover
What: Bring along your project - big or small! Chat; drink tea; SEW!!!
Coming soon . . .We've been wanting to extend our range of basics and are really excited to have the full range of these little lovelies winging their way to HQ.
as well as a these . . .
That's all for now - have a lovely weekend!
