Hen Party Sewing Bee

Our first hen party sewing bee was a delightful success!

We provided a group of 15 ladies with a table full of fabric and accessories, and a linen square to decorate to how they wished. The results were fantastic, we were all so pleased with the amount of creativity that was on offer. No square was the same, and each person got stuck in at the word go!

Many of the ladies had never sewn before and were a bit apprehensive of having to use a sewing machine, but after being shown the basics, they were confident enough to go on and machine on their designs.

Afternoon tea was served along side all the sewing, on our very own vintage china tea cups and saucers. Each person tucked into a delicious fat scone with jam and cream!

The workshop lasted around 3 hours, which was just enough time for everyone to complete their square. We will then work on finishing off the bedspread for the Bride before her wedding day.

The buzz in the room whilst everyone was sewing and chatting was such a nice atmosphere, it really is an excellent way to spend time with all of your friends and make something that you may never have thought you could have attempted before.

I am pleased so say that we have also made some sewing converts, they have already got the bug and are keen to come on along to another one of our workshops.

  1. Having Joy to Make at the Hen Party was just the best decision ever! There was so much chatter and laughter, along with a healthy helping of competitiveness, around the table, all helped along by the tea and cake under the watchful eye of Joy herself. Some were rather coy about showing their designs whilst others were so amazed at what they were managing to create that they couldn’t help but keep showing it off. Everyone, regardless of whether they were novices or experienced, learnt something that morning and boy did we have fun along the way and the sense of satisfaction when we saw all the squares laid out was immense. Now Sam has a truly unique quilt with love sewn into every stitch and so many happy memories. Thank you so much Joy.
