• SewCam: All The Info & Wonderful Sponsors!

  • ***SOLD OUT EVENT***

    On Sunday 9th December, a bunch of 30 dressmakers will be descending upon Storey’s Field Centre in Eddington, Cambridge for a festive day of doing what we love most – sewing! 

    The venue (Storey’s Field Centre) is a brand new building on the newly developed area on the outskirts of Cambridge called Eddington. It is an incredible building, and has recently won and been shortlisted for a number of architecture awards (including the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize 2018). So it will be the perfect backdrop for much sewing magic to happen (and of course, those all important Instagram snaps!). 

    Attendees will be bringing along their own machines and projects to work on, while nattering with sewing neighbours and munching a mince pie or two! 

    *Please note that this event has now SOLD OUT*

    If you are interested in being added to the waitlist then please email hello@gingerthreadgirl.co.uk

    I am absolutely thrilled to announce that these incredible brands have all gotten on board with sponsoring various elements of this very first SewCam event. A huge thank you to each and every one of you!

    Overlocker Station

    The wonderful team at Brother Sewing UK have agreed to loan us 2 overlockers for use on the day, as well as some tote bags and other goodies!

    Charity Raffle

    I am over the moon to have selected breast cancer charity Coppafeel to receive proceeds from our charity raffle. Such a great cause which is close to my heart – with an important message to spread (check those boobs ladies!). And I can’t help but let slip that prize donations have been absolutely AMAZING! I am blown away by the generosity of these wonderful brands – so a huge thank you to all of you for all of the contributions!


    Goody Bags

    And I am thrilled that all of the following brands have offered to contribute to goody bags for the very lucky attendees - again, a huge thank you!



    And a big shout out to the following sponsors for keeping up our sewing fuel levels with tea, coffee and CAKE!

  • SewCam: A New Sewing Event in Cambridge

  • So excited to share with you all this brand spanking new event which I have been working on organising! I have previously shared this on Instagram and since doing this I am astonished/thrilled/completely touched to report that all 30 tickets sold out within 36 hours of being on sale…!

    The first event is a festive sewing day which is taking place on Sunday 9th December at Storey’s Field Centre in Eddington, Cambridge. It is an opportunity for likeminded sewists to meet up and work on our own sewing projects, whilst having a good old natter… and generally geek out over sewing together!

    Attendees will be bringing along their own sewing machines, and I will be setting up a couple of ironing board stations… and hopefully a little overlocker station too (fingers crossed!). And we will be scoffing on mince pies for our sewing energy throughout the day too.

    More info on this event is available via the Eventbrite page HERE.

    I will be photographing and videoing snippets from the day, so full details will follow after the event. So keep your eyes peeled for that.

    Sew excited for this!
