We contacted Maddie back last Autumn about coming over to London to run her first non-US bra making workshop and were so excited when she said ‘yes, yes, YES!’. We didn’t know when or how but we thought it was a great idea all those months ago and last weekend we had two truly amazing workshops in our office by Granary Square.
We started the day with breakfast before Maddie got started with the teaching. We had two brilliant groups over the two days, it felt quite indulgent to have two days packed full of sewing chat. Maddie talked the groups through each of the steps before they got going with the next bit of the bras. The day was finished up with an afternoon cream tea and fitting tips. Suddenly people started rushing off and running back in with their bras on – a couple of people left in theirs, now that’s gotta be a sign of a successful workshop right!?
We’re already scheming up our next project with Maddie (any excuse for a trip to NY??) and excited to get sewing even more bras. Maddie put together this video of her London trip, take a look, and check out her round up here!
