A fabulous day of Sewing, Chatting and swapping hints and tips

Just to give you a bit of background before I tell you about the Sewing Sewcial Events - my sister-in-law, Christine Deal, and I have been sewing for quite a while. We were both taught to sew by our mums but Christine was a lot more advanced than me. She had made various things over the years and was a whizz at making her own clothes and alterations whereas I had taken to making soft furnishings and had even sold bespoke furnishings - basically square pieces of material sewn together!

Then COVID hit and (along with the rest of the country) we dug out our sewing machines. We both decided to make masks and scrubs bags - Christine donated all of the money she sold the masks for to charity and I made scrubs bags for nurses and key workers at various hospitals in the local area.

Christine has gone on to totally revamp her wardrobe, set up her own YouTube channel, helping other sewers (https://youtube.com/@geministitchers1449) and I have invested my time in making The Mill House everything you see today.

So, the Sewing Sewcial Events are really bringing our two loves together to create a fabulous day where like minded people can come together and swap hints and tips, just chat and enjoy each other's company!

The first event that we held on 2nd August was a big success - Denise from www.instagram.com/tillymintsews won the raffle prize of a fabulous unique tote bag, made with material from www.instagram.com/flamingofabricsuk with more material inside and a little bottle of prosecco (to reward the winner after a long day of sewing).

We've organised another event on 6th September which is now fully booked and are planning our next event for October - date to follow soon. We are also planning to hold these events on a fortnightly basis so that sewers have more of a choice of when they can attend and fit things in.
