Sharing with Sewcialists April 25 2017

Thank you to everyone who came to our second Make Sewcial evening. This was our opportunity to use our sewing hive mind to come up with a collection of the best sewing hints and tips.
We had a fabulous time sharing tips, chatting up a storm and most importantly fabric shopping!
Team Make decided that it was time to unveil our matching Tilly and the Buttons Cleos and we were very excited to see some very talented Sewists showing off their handmade threads too.
If you come to Make in a 'me made' outfit you will be photographed against our mustard wall of fame!
Check out the beautiful tops that Nicky and Zara wore to Make Sewcial. Nicky is rocking a cobalt blue Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top and Zara had me coveting her Atelier Brunette sweater fabric sewn up as a Grainline Linden.
We were overwhelmed by the amount of sewing knowledge gathered in one room and we've managed to collate a few of our top tips so if you couldn't make it this time you can can check out our most popular tips.
An invaluable piece of advice handed down through generations of respectful fabric lovers. No one wants their precious fabric spoilt!
We had a lot of great tips about sewing machine maintenance, we all love sewing but every Sewist also needs to learn how to take care of their kit properly and hopefully we've added a few more years to our machines by learning that you must clean your machine after every project.
 
I think given our discussions about fabric hoarding this definitely applies to all Sewists who love their fabric stashes!
Keep your eyes peeled for more sewing tips and details of the Make Sewcial.
