Celebration Days at Backstitch


This week I have been finalising a years' worth of instore events at Backstitch.

We had fallen into a routine in the last few years with Sew Saturday in October and Yarn Shop Day in May but last year I really felt that this wasn't working for us anymore. I didn't feel we were gaining any real benefit from being part of a nationwide event, and they were scheduled at a time of year that didn't feel right either.

So, we are doing something entirely different this year. I have developed an event schedule, exclusive to Backstitch, which will hopefully celebrate all our customer groups in a way that feels right for us. You can take a look at the individual Facebook events for more information, and declare your interest to keep up to date. Or, if you don't use Facebook, you can look at our calendar and keep an eye on our newsletters for what's coming up.

We look forward to seeing you in the shop at one of our celebration days soon!

THE BIG SEWING MACHINE SALE DAY: SUNDAY 22ND MARCH 2020 Every year we sell off our demo and classroom machines at a big mark-down.
