Our Winter Party was a night filled with mulled wine, christmas decorations, pizzas and sewists – i.e. the best kind of party! We had such a fun time and loved chatting to old and new sewing friends. We were too busy having fun to take many pictures (we NEED to hire a photographer for the next party) but have compiled a few of the ones we did take below. Enjoy!
The calm before the storm…
As well as chatting, drinking and dancing we also had a Mini Market with some of our favourite companies to shop from. Parfait for Christmas gifts! The lovely Kate (pictured below) joined at the last minute. We met Kate on one of our Bra Making classes and found out about the wonderful embroidery she does so invited her along, we were so happy when she said yes! Have a peruse on her Etsy shop here.
Nina Lee, The Avid Seamstress and Sew Over It were also selling their tings in the market. Have you seen Lisa Comfort’s new line of lifestyle products? The Hackney maps are really cute and were pretty apt for our Hackney party.
Sew Over It gals Alex and Louise.
Mermaid sequin was a popular choice!
Seeing everyone showing off their creations is the best part of the night, we get so much inspiration for our future makes too.
Loved this glittery Tilly and the Buttons Cleo.
Sarah in her wonderfully whooshy and sparkly dress.
Sarah (@likesewamazing) and Andrew (please let us know if you know his instagram!) were both runners up in the competition and won one of our patches and a Sew Over It pattern each. The winner though was Chloe (@chloehand90) who wore a beautiful Named Patterns Agate dress in velvet.
Sorry we didn’t get a better photo, Chloe!
Chloe won a voucher from Fabric Godmother and an online sewing class with Sew Over It. We also had a raffle with prizes from Suzy Magazine, Sew Me Sunshine, Girl Charlee and Love Crafts and goodie bags for the first 30 people through the door with lots of treats. Everyone was spoilt!
We couldn’t have had such a wonderful night without our team of superstars, Holly on the door, Aaron on pizza orders and Lexy on the bar. Recognise the skirt Holly’s wearing? It’s one of our Quick Sew Party Skirts!
We had a fab night and can’t wait for the next party. See you there?
