High Summer Sewing

It's that time of year again as the end of the school year creeps towards us on the calendar, the warm weather persuades us to slow down, chill out and settle into a high summer routine. Wimbledon is on the TV and the hay needs cutting in our field and the days start to feel long and lazy. I love this time of year.

My sewing regime slows down too. I want to do hand sewing, I don't want to think too much about what i'm doing. I want to be able to sew in a deck chair and by the sea. Lots of my classes are drawing to an end, and I'm having so much fun seeing the wonderful projects that are getting made at the Workroom. From lampshades, to Fabric Baskets, Purses to Bags and Quilts - a riot of High Summer colour and pattern. All of my favourite things.

However there are still a few busy weeks of school and schedules and things to do lists. If getting your project ticked off before school is out is on your things to do list then we can help.

As well as our popular Therapy Thursday Sewing Session ( which we know is often hard to book into due to demand) we will be offering two special UFO (UnFinished Object) days on Tuesday 8th and 15th of July where you can book ( send us an e mail or pop in and add your name to the book on the counter in the shop) to come along and sew all day. It's always a fun full day of sewing and might just help you to Get That Project Done! We provide the tea and cake, equipment and lots of help and guidance so do book in if you need some help or encouragement.

If you're the super organised type and you are already thinking about next season - check out our Autumn Classes list as lots of classes are filling up fast. If you're new to sewing and want to build up your stash ready for a new Autumn Class - or if you've had such a productive spring and summer of sewing that that stash is in need of some replenishment we have a

Super Stash Builder Sale 

running for all of July. From July 1st - buy 3 fat quarters and add a 4th for free and giving away fab new PlainStitch Bags. We are receiving lots of fab new fabric in anticipation of all the exciting projects that kick off in the autumn so pop in and see whats new and inspiring.

The Wendover Sewing Bee meets next Tuesday 1st July from 9.30am - 12pm, as ever just £4 on the door, no need to book -just turn up and sew ( and chat, and drink tea, and trade fabric, and chat!). We have been asked by The Parish Council  to contribute to a really special village project through the Autumn, and we'll be sharing some details about that at the Bee on Tuesday. The Evening Bee meets at Whitewaters on 15th July at 8pm. Happy High Summer Sewing x
