  • I live in jeans, trainers, tshirts and sweatshirts.  It is very boring but quite frankly when it comes to what I shove on in the morning I am okay about being boring.  What can I say, I'm a practical kinda gal and the casual look sits happily with my lifestyle.  Sometimes I'd like to be a little more styled but it's taken a while to realise that it's unlikely!

    Sew Saturday promises to be a fun day to meet each other, have a natter, pick up some bargains and get all inspired for the fireside sewing season... well, we're all for that – put the date in your diary!

    Sew Saturday 2016 is a national campaign. It was first organised last year by Sew Magazine, in a bid to boost the profile of sewing stores and to remind sewing enthusiasts of the personal service we provide. We also feel it was particularly successful at reminding sewers that we are a place where you can get good advice and feel part of the sewing and crafting community too. The Sew Saturday ambassadors are The Great British Sewing Bee's May Martin and series one Sewing Bee contestants and stitching personalities Stuart Hillard and Lauren Guthrie.

    We look forward to welcoming you in store on 15th October!
