This Saturday 6th October is Sew Saturday! We’ve had a super busy few months what with #thebigsummerstitchup and planning for #sewmas on 24th November but we love what #sewsaturday stands for and are really pleased to be participating. It’s a celebration of bricks and mortar fabric shops up and down the country. We’ll be embracing the best part, the sewcial side! Join us for cake and fizz, sewing chat, a great giveaway and an exclusive in-store discount. Plus you can book studio time and use our machines whilst chatting with friends. Oh and maybe grab a prop from the selfie station! See you there, and if you can’t make it to us then see if your local shop is participating and support small. #sewsaturday2018 #shopsmall #shopindependent #supportsmallbusiness

#sewphotohop Sewcial ~ I’ve made so many friends through sewing, it’s that shared commonality of something you really love that breaks down barriers and starts conversations. One of my favourite things is seeing people make friends at the shop, chatting about projects and plans and then undoubtedly life in general. Happy, smiling faces is what we love and making sure everyone feels welcome. These photos were taken at #thebigsummerstitchup this year and it was amazing to meet so many likeminded people. Looking forward to #Sewmas and next year! . . 📸 @terryjoshi

Girl’s got style! Blown away by this outfit sewn up by @nerrisapratt and love the print combo. . . Top Viscose sold out on the day of #thebigsummerstitchup but we have a little of the Turquoise Trellis used for her skirt left. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ~ TAGS ~ #sewing #sewcialists #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewersgonnasew #dressmaking #lovesewing #makersmovement #memadeeveryday #sewisfaction #fabric #fabriclover #fabricaddict #isewmyownclothes #handmadewardrobe #sewingismysuperpower #dressmaker #wardrobenvy #styleinspo #fashioninspo

My last dress and my trip to #thebigsummerstitchup has given me a much needed boost. I was starting.g to think I should take up quilting as my last few makes have been a bit 😝. Thank you @susanyoungsewing for inviting me and @gingerscraps along 😊. Here's the fabric I bought and swapped but if Mr P asks, they are all swaps! Thanks @gingerscraps for giving me a pattern before we left for the swap. I liked the pleats on the shoulder of this top. Perfect for work x #fabricstash #feedyhestash #fabric

Can’t believe it’s been a whole week since #thebigsummerstitchup, we had such a brilliant day. It’s true what they say - sewing people are the best people! . . Our next meet-up/party will be for Sew Saturday on 6th October - a national event organised by Sew Magazine encouraging people to visit bricks & mortar fabric shops and support independents. Hope to see you then! . . 📸 @terryjoshi | Feel free to tag yourself if you’re in the photos!

Had a great day yesterday visiting Sewisfaction HQ meeting Sheona and the team as well as Kathy from @sew_dainty and the StitchSisters @sodburysewing @shesewsvintage Screen printed a bag with @flat102 although perhaps the slogan should have said fabric addict given the cheeky purchases. Thank you for organising the day Sheona #thebigsummerstitchup @sewisfaction

Who’s going along to this on Saturday! The gorgeous Sheona of @sewisfaction has organised a super fun sewing day with shopping, bbq and of course lots of fabric!! You’ve all got to go check it out, it sounds like it’s going to be amaaazing!! I had originally signed up to have a stand on the day but unfortunately, we’ve had some more sad news in our life this week and this weekend we are attending a dear uncle’s funeral 😞 I was so sorry to have to pull out at the last minute, but Sheona has been an absolute doll and has been so understanding about the circumstances. What a total babe she is💖☺️ ...So folks, if you’re able to get down to her in Wokingham this Saturday, 11am - 4pm, please go and show your support and enjoy the day! Buy some fabric and eat a bit of bbq for me too please ... 😘💕💖See @sewisfaction for full event details 🙌💜

There’s only one way to get over the crushing disappointment of tonight’s football - looking forward to #thebigsummerstitchup in 3 days! . . We’ve had lots of messages from people who are coming alone and are a bit nervous about not knowing anyone - please don’t worry. Everyone is so friendly and there are so many people coming from all over, there will definitely be someone to chat to! Come up and see the team when you arrive and we’ll make sure you get a warm welcome! . . Feel free to comment below if you’re joining us and want to see who else is coming along...💕

This week is flying by! Today let’s talk about our Pattern & Fabric Swap. . . If you’ve got some fabric or a pattern that’s been stashed for years and you really don’t know what to do with it, don’t leave it languishing unloved! Bring it along to #TheBigSummerStitchUp on Saturday and add it to our Swap table. If you bring something you can take something - and remember that age old adage - one woman’s unloved stash is another woman’s amazing new dress....! . . You can bring as much or as little as you like and we’ll make sure everything goes to a good home. Anything left at the end of the swap will be donated to the local schools or recycled. . . There’s still time to register for your free ticket (it really helps us to know numbers) the link is in our bio, but you can just turn up on the day.

Lots of you asked for plain, medium weight fabric for makes like the @truebias Lander Pants, @closetcase.patterns Jenny Overalls & Fiona Dress and other similar patterns. We’ve just picked up these stunning quality Japanese Cotton Twills in a whole range of colours including blush pink, navy, petrol and more! They’ll be in the shop for the Big Summer Stitch Up on Saturday and what’s left will go online next week. Can’t wait to see what you all make with them.
