We've open for business for six weeks now and WOW has it flown by! Well they do say time flies when you're having fun and we've certainly had that.
In between sourcing new, delicious fabrics, patterns and accessories, and preparing Sewalicious parcels to send all over the world, we released the Tropicana Kaftan/blouse free pattern sew-along as well as working on a free cardigan pattern. This and an accompanying sew-along will be be launched in the next couple of weeks and we have some gorgeous knits, perfect for cardigans coming too... yes we are the company that just keeps giving :).
We've been overwhelmed by everyone's feedback and it's thrilling and encouraging to hear from so many people at the start of their dressmaking journey. In response to this we hope to soon offer beginner sewing workshops locally in Twickenham, Greater London. Anyone that lives near (or far ;) and would like to start sewing, watch this space!
We'll also soon will be launching our new 'Glitz and Glam' collection in preparation for the festive period which seems to gets longer and longer each year - only 100 days to go to Christmas on the day of this blog post.
This week we're off to the Handmade Fair in Hampton Court. It's very close to where we live which makes it even more exciting. The whole team is going, so we might bump into a few of you there.
It's been so fantastic seeing your Sewalicious makes on instagram. There's something so special in seeing other people's creativity in making a garment from fabric that we love and have chosen, or from one of our free patterns.
Anyone who is not on instagram, please email us a photo of your makes (email@example.com). By sharing, you can be in with a chance to win two and a half metres of your choice in fabric in our monthly prize giveaway.
Have a great week!
