October 4th is the official 7th Anniversary of the launch of The Thrifty Stitcher!
So much has happened since 2009 when I ran the first ever Starting from Scratch beginners sewing class from our sewing studio in Stokey.
- I became the Sewing Producer for The Great British Sewing Bee.
- Wrote a best selling sewing book.
- Am now studying a Master’s degree in pattern cutting and garment technology!
We are now one of the oldest private sewing schools in London!
To celebrate hitting our 7th Anniversary, we have an amazing competition for you!
Autumn is the season to start layering, and knit fabric is perfect for cosy tees or sweatshirts. Not only is knit fabric lovely to wear, it makes fitting soon much easier. Girl Charlee Fabrics offer a fabulous selection of all kind of knits that just aren’t available anywhere else! I wish I could enter myself!
Girl Charlee Fabrics who have kindly sponsored this competition have offered the a bundle of their latest knit fabrics as a prize! Some of the fabric is yet to be listed on the site!
To enter please answer the following questions by commenting below.
- Where in London is The Thrifty Studio?
- Who runs Girl Charlee Fabrics?
This Competition closes on October 30th 2016.
Brand new free mini beginners sewing course.
In addition to celebrating our anniversary with a fabulous prize, we’ve been busy behind the scenes creating our first ever online course. It’s a mini series aimed for absolute beginners, so please share if you know someone keen to learn to sew.
