Christmas sewing

Posted on

Join us in the run-up to Christmas to get your home ready for this beautiful time of year.

At the ‘Christmas housewarming sewing‘ sessions we’ll be sewing fun (or chic if you prefer): fabric wreaths, advent bunting, fabric ball-balls, reindeer head cushions, tea towels, placemats or table runners.

Check dates and book a session online to join us here.

We’ll also be making home-made Christmas gifts – easy but beautiful gifts for family and friends. From iPad stands, baby booties, stocking for every family member, lace cape for the celebration season and any of the above home warming makes from the too.

Bring your chosen fabric and top your colour scheme up with some fabric or buttons on sale from my haberdashery.

Check out the items that we’ll be making below on my Christmas Housewarming Sewing pinterest board.

Sewing Bee Series 5

Posted on

So my mother-in-law gets the TV listings sent to her monthly – she then peruses it with great care and calls me with enthusiasm if she sees anything of interest.

So with excitement – I announce that there’s another series of (drumroll)
‘The Great British Sewing Bee’ which starts THIS coming Thursday on BBC2 at 8pm.

So stick it in the diary or set to record it – there’s always something to learn or even simply interesting to see how others tackle projects and sewing challenges and great to get the creative juices flowing!

Christmas Swish Event

Ealing Town Hall, W5
Wednesday 26 November
12 – 6.30pm

 
Bring and swap your pre-loved clothing, shoes and accessories at this free local event. 

“Swishing extends the life of clothes and accessories, increasing value for money and reducing the impact of textiles ending up in landfill. According to research, an average of 30% of clothes in households, equating to roughly 1.7billion items, are not worn over the course of a year. That’s a startling figure.”

Fab for getting a new outfit for the work Christmas party. See you there!
