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!

Sew what cafe

Sewing Café launch event

Saturday 5 July, 11am – 3pm

Pop in for a cup of tea with your family to see the café and meet other local sewing bees.

We now have space for a new sewing café that has all you need to get away from home chores so that you can get some sewing done or practice your new skills.

151 Brunswick road W5 1AH. No appointment is necessary for this event but please note that sessions are usually pre-booked online or by appointment.

I look forward to see you at the launch event.

Why don’t you and a few friends go on a road trip to The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace on 11-14 October, 10am-5.30pm. 4 ‘Mini’ tickets cost £38 for 4 instead of £15 on the door – advanced individual tickets are £12. (Pre-book tickets online before 5 October at noon.) There are heaps of amazing workshops to get you making and trying new skills.


Then join us with your new found sewing ideas and projects for a Supervised Sewing Group session in Ealing on 13 October, 10am – 1pm. Enjoy cake and someone at hand to guide you if you get stuck or a few gals to help you brainstorm how to upcycle your favourite (now torn) dress into a bag! Get away from home – come and sew that project you’ve still not got to – yes, it’s almost Christmas!

Book now – still spaces in the ‘Alterations‘ and also the ‘Zips & Button holes‘ classes on 29 September.
