Make Sewcial is almost here again and this time it's all about sharing and we want to tap into our Make Sewcialists incredible knowledge bank.
Sewers, sewists, seamstresses, dressmakers and textile crafters when gathered in the same room represent a wealth of knowledge that google will never be able to match. This knowledge may have been passed down through the generations, picked up at a memorable sewing lesson or simply be the sum of your latest 'ah ha' epiphany when tackling a tricky sewing project.
We all know something that someone else would love to know!
Let's be true Sewcialists and share our sewing fountain of knowledge together for a great evening of sewing chat, tip swapping and shopping.
We are very nosy and we would love to know:
- Your oldest sewing tip
- You newest sewing discovery
- A sewing question; for instance have you been dying know what that thingy does on your sewing machine, does everyone else make a toile or how much coffee does it take to get one sewer through a double welt pocket?
We will ask you for your tips and questions when you book your Make Sewcial ticket through eventbrite. We will then sort through these and pop them into our big sewing tips jar ready for sharing on the night.
Last time at Make Sewcial a few of you were asking for advice on which patterns with which fabric, for one night only I will totally at your disposal as Make's very own Wardrobe Architect. Don't be alarmed this is nothing to do with Trinny and Susananah! I will be there to offer guidance on which patterns are suitable for your skill level and which fabrics will be appropriate.
Come wearing your best handmade glad rags and appear on the Makers Polaroid gallery too. We love to see what you've been making, I did mention that we are very nosy! There will also be prosecco on offer for a small donation to St. Luke's Hospice to help the conversation flow and a special Make Sewcial nibbles plate for only £5 to keep you fueled all evening!
Not only would we like you to share your knowledge but also your old patterns too! We thought starting our very own Make Pattern Library would be a great way to recycle all those old vintage patterns and magazine freebies and give them a new lease of life. In my other life I'm also a librarian so I'm looking forward to organising all of your offerings and seeking what we can share with Makers new and old.
Last but not least on the night there will be 15% Sewcial discount, a great time to snap up fabric or patterns you've had your eye on for a while or if you're anything like me just compulsively buying something pretty for your ever growing fabric stash!
Book your place here, get there quick!
