Festival, Fairs & Workshops

Here is a list of all the festivals, fairs and workshops I am taking part in this year. Come along and say hello!

Improvers Sewing Workshop: Sunday 6 July

MAKE A DRESS IN A DAY: A one day workshop for intermediate sewers. This workshop combines the key elements of following a pattern and using a sewing machine. It is pitched at beginners who have attended one of my beginner workshops and want to improve their sewing skills. You will leave the day with a dress made from vintage fabric. The class is taught by me, Sarah Richards, click here to read about my sewing journey. It is a small class with only 4 participants giving you chance for 1:1 tuition throughout the day.

FUTURE DATES: 4 August | 6 October | 3 November 2019 – make a wide range of items.

Pop Up Vintage at Wilton’s Music Hall: 25 July

If you haven’t had the chance to explore the magnificent Wilton’s Music Hall yet then I recommend coming along to this super busy vintage fair. A stone’s throw away from the City of London, the music hall is one of the last surviving Victorian Music halls. The atmosphere of the building is filled with the ghosts of it’s lively past. Browsing the vintage stalls, listening to the live music and watching the swing dance performers is the perfect opportunity to take in the whole building, ending up in the cocktail bar of course! Sadly I can’t make it this year but wanted to still tell you about it as it is so good!

Festival of Fabric: Saturday 28 September

Organised by the Felixstowe Sewing School and proud winner of a tourism award, this festival is for fabric and dressmaking enthusiasts. I’ll be selling a wide range of vintage fabrics, fat quarters and vintage buttons. I’m looking forward to meeting fellow vintage fabric fans.

The Knitting & Stitching Show: 10 to 13 Oct

I launched my vintage fabric shop at this show last year. It was amazing to meet so many sewers who value the style of vintage and the preservation of such beautiful fabrics. I chatted to so many people about their projects, favourite fabrics and prints. I’m excited to be back again this year. Find me on stand J17, next to Tilly & The Buttons.
