Let's get sewcialising today!
Hi. Welcome to my corner of the webosphere. Here you'll find me telling everyone about how I pass on my passion of sewing and especially how to become part of a sewing community.
There are sewing groups, all kinds of patchwork workshops, kits and quilt patterns and retreats at places like Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa. They're all in the making right now!
Stitchscape is based in the North West of the U.K, especially in Liverpool and on the Wirral. Since November 2019 I have a studio at Merseymade in the heart of Liverpool city centre, which is a brand new venture. It includes 10 open studios (of which I have one), an event room, a cafe and shop. The whole ethos of Merseymade is to provide locally produced goods and give another opportunity to small creative businesses to flourish. Every item in the shop and studios is made within a 50 mile radius of Paradise Street, Liverpool. During the lockdown for Covid 19, there is an online Merseymade shop and I have one too.
So what are you waiting for? Get reading and if you have any queries please do get in touch to learn more.
I usually make items to sell in Merseymade and when you visit you can see my studio upstairs with 9 others. If you want anything personalising by me stitching names or events on my projects, then get in touch and we can make it happen.
There are sewing kits and/or patterns to enable people to make their own versions of some of my creations.
If you want some company whilst making any of those kits, there will be sewcials and workshops in the event room again, as soon as we are legally able. I'm collecting ideas to make that feasible when regulations are lessened. In the meantime I have got a small online shop, so you could get some crafty goodies there - head over here to see that
I have at least one sewing machine set up in my studio and a whole range of sewing tools, fabrics and haberdashery. I have 6 Janome sewing machines for use at Merseymade at the sewcials and workshops and retreats. Sales of sewing machines has gone through the roof during lockdown. In normal circumstances you can watch me make things and gain an inside into how the magic happens. With any luck, I'll inspire you and/or your family to enter into the fab world of stitchy doings. Perhaps you started creating during the lockdown as a way to keep busy and make nice things for you and your home. Want to try more things? I do offer one to one Zoom tutorials if you don't want to wait until we can open again - check out the details HERE
Do you have a question about my products or my process? Send me a message, or give me a call. This is a place for sew-a-holics and people who have an inkling that sewing might be their new joy.
