The Sewing Weekender took place in Cambridge this weekend!
After lots of planning and waiting it was, of course, over in a flash. I’m now home again, with a cup of tea in hand, and I thought I’d share a little reveal of the goodie bags.
On Saturday morning, attendees arrived to find a The Fold Line goodie bag, stuffed to bursting with the following:
Janome, who provided the sewing machines for the Weekender, provided a goodie bag for each attendee containing a tape measure, swatch card and stationary.
Any attendees who hadn’t decided what to sew over the weekend (or who were liable to change their mind) may have been swung by their Marshmallow Dress paper pattern from CocoWawa Crafts. These patters were extra special as the lovely Ana has only just released the Marshmallow as a paper pattern – and these were hot from the printer.
Attendees can go home and label up their stash (and perhaps some new additions from the swap…), with fabric tags from Sew Hayley Jane, who was herself an attendee.
Plush Addict provided sewing supplies for the Weekender and beyond, in the form of Gutterman threads and elastic in a variety of shades.
Sew Now Magazine provided a copy of the magazine.
Cotton Reel Studio supplied attendees with a set of pins.
Simply Sewing Magazine provided a copy for every attendee.
Sew Crafty provided a Dressmaking Journal, ideal for attendees to document all of the additional garments they wanted to make by the end of the weekend! (P.S. Sew Crafty also sell craft, and knitting/crochet journals, so all of your crafts are covered).
Stoff and Stil sent attendees one metre of their woven navy bird-print viscose, plus haberdashery supplies.
Simplicity sent plush toy sewing patterns.
Lucy from Sew Essential joined us at the weekend, and provided each attendee with a handy guide to different fabric types, plus a selection of threads.
Abakhan sent pocket sewing kits, plus shopping bags.
Plus attendees took away a range of discount codes, including from Beyond Measure for post Weekender shopping.
