This time two weeks ago, we were still coming down from the amazing fun that was #SewBrizzle! I took my new(ish) proper camera and made sure to take lots of photos to share with you all so here they are (just a little late, I’m sorry!). With around 30 people in attendance, everyone said they had a great day and took away a few pieces of fabric and/or patterns, along with the excellent goodie bags organised by Marie of SEWN Bristol.
We had some ah-mah-zing #SewBrizzle bunting made by Amy!
What party, sewing or otherwise, would be complete without Prosecco and sweets?! Answer: NONE! So we welcomed as many as we could with these, along with their very own name tag.
Many wore me-made dresses including these beautiful creations from Ruth and Sara.
There was ALL THE FABRIC and ALL THE PATTERNS, the latter of which we’d separated into garment type e.g. dresses, tops, bottoms, etc. We’d also made little pattern and fabric tags so people could add details about whether it had already been cut and the size, pre-washed, etc.
Ladies looking pretty pleased with their hauls!
Some people came an impressive distance, including Amelia (stripey top) who came from Gloucestershire. Having followed her blog Thrift Make Sew for a little while, it was lovely to meet her in person.
As the 3 hours came to an end, Amy and I were certainly pretty pooped, albeit still grinning like cheshire cats!
But naturally, you just cannot tear sewcialists away from one another!
I really hope everyone had as much of an amazing time as I did! And we certainly want to do another one so keep your eyes and ears peeled if you didn’t make it to this one.
Oh and if anyone spots themselves in these photos and would like me to a) remove them or b) link to their social media, please just let me know!
