A lovely little sewing meet


Earlier today I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful bunch of dressmaking enthusiasts, at our very first Cambridge sewing meet. This was organised via the genius of The Foldline website, and we met up at Backstitch near Cambridge.

As this was our first meet, I thought it would be best to keep it casual, and just meet for a natter over tea and cake – and I have to say it was perfect. It was wonderful to just chat about our sewing, current projects, tips and tricks, and swap experiences of using different patterns and fabrics.

I even managed to bake a cake for the occasion, which I think went down ok! I was really pleased with how it turned out.

I had a great time meeting these lovely ladies – not a surprise at all, as I have always found the sewing community to be wonderful folk!

And thank you to Backstitch for hosting us today. It was a pleasure to come and have a browse through the gorgeous fabrics and make some cheeky purchases 😉

Great to meet you ladies!

    Looks like it was a good day, I was sorry to miss it. I have been to quite a few meet-ups in London - It would have been nice to get to another one more local! Next time! I have just read through your blog - you have some lovely makes. I particularly like your Crepe Anna. I have made a shorter one, but would love a long fancy one too! I am going to add you to my reader.
