    I am a new addition to the ‘Social Sewing’ group & I do wonder what took me so long !!!

    It’s 2 uninterrupted hours with your sewing project, a great sewing community, learning as we go with a tutorial from Kaye each week based on requests from the group, I have learned how to do plackets, adjust sleeves on a pattern, shirring and piping to mention a few

    Some of the ladies in the group have been ‘Social Sewing’ for quite some time and seeing the friendships that have been forged and knowledge that is constantly shared is something very special, Kaye really has a unique talent or creating the perfect environment for people to learn, create and share.

    I joined the group during lockdown as it has moved to Zoom , but once lockdown restrictions are lifted and I move to Hitchin I am very much looking forward to joining ‘Social Sewing’ in person.

    Thanks so much to everyone at The Studio at Number 30 for continuing to make this event happen, especially at a time when we need it & each other the most xx

    Social sewing is a great opportunity to have a dedicated afternoon of sewing in the company of friendly and helpful fellow sewers as well as the availability of 2 experts who are there to offer whatever assistance is needed from deciphering patterns, helping with fitting and fixing troublesome machines. They are a great source of knowledge on patterns and fabrics and provide lovely cake each week!
