SOCIAL SEWING SATURDAYS Sat 25 March 2023 has a rating of 5.0 stars based on 1 reviews.


Let’s sew together! Social Sewing Saturdays are an opportunity to bring your projects and sew along with like-minded crafters. 

Unlike a class or workshop, this is the perfect chance to work on a project of your choice and sew in a relaxed, social setting in the company of others. There will be sewing chat, tea, and of course, cake! Our sewing patterns, haberdashery and small range of fabric will be available to purchase and you can chat with our founder, Lisa about the other fun workshops we have.

What’s included?

  • Full use of the studio and equipment including large tables, irons, scissors, pins etc
  • Sewing machines are available, but you are more than welcome to bring your own
  • Use of our two overlockers - please note that one will be set with black thread and the other cream thread.
  • Tea and coffee on tap
  • CAKE

With a maximum of 6 people, this will be a relaxed and joyful way to spend your Saturday. 

Important. Please note this is not a class and there is no tuition included. Please bring a project that you are able to work on on your own. This is an opportunity to enjoy the social aspect of sewing amongst a group of likeminded sewists. If cutting out your project is likely to take a lot of time, you may want to cut it beforehand so you can just have a wonderful Saturday of sewing! Lisa will be at the studio but will be enjoying the rare opportunity to sew amongst everyone too. You are welcome to ask questions amongst the group if you are stuck and we are sure everyone would be willing to help each other.


The studio will be open from 10am - 5pm
