Friday rolls around again and brings us one week closer to this year’s Sew Up North so it’s time for another blog post detailing our wonderful sponsors
As a reminder, you need a ticket to attend this year’s event in Leeds on October 26th; you can join the waitlist for any newly available tickets here. Raffle tickets will only be available at the event with all proceeds going to Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Last year, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and attendees, we raised over £1k for this wonderful charity, so fingers crossed we can come near that total again this year!
First up this week is the lovely Girl Charlee. Specialising in jersey fabrics of all different types, Girl Charlee also offer patterns and have donated a hamper worth £50 to the raffle prize pool.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Helen’s Closet. Helen is one of the co-hosts of the wonderful Love to Sew podcasts and designs a range of modern sewing patterns. I’m a big fan of the Blackwood cardigan and Ashton top, not to mention the Winslow culottes. Helen has kindly donated 3 pdf patterns of the winner’s choice to the prize pool.
In A Haystack is a new monthly sewing subscription service. Each month, you receive an email with loads of sewing related content, interviews and inspiration from featured small businesses, discount codes and a free indie pattern. It’s a great way to be introduced to new makers and get a little shot of inspiration and Kate has kindly donated a 2 month subscription to the prize pool.
Owned and run by blogger Sarah, Like Sew Amazing is a wonderful online shop which also has a bricks and mortar presence based in Bristol. Sarah stocks a fabulous range of fabrics, patterns and haberdashery and has donated some wonderful pattern weight to the prize pool (I have several sets of these weights and absolutely love them!)
Made By Jack’s Mum offers stylish sewing patterns for children and adults. Sarah offers pdf and hard copy patterns through her website and Etsy store and has donated three patterns to the prize pool; the Heyday dungarees, the Penelope Pinafore and the ladies’ Hot Chocolate pattern.
Minerva Crafts is an enormous online shop stocking fabrics, haberdashery, patterns and supplies for a large variety of crafts. Vicki has kindly donated a sewing box filled with haberdashery worth at least £100 to the prize pool.
Pink Coat Club make the most wonderful sewing related gifts and accessories. I’ll admit to having a collection of her fabulous sewing related pin badges, and I may possibly have added some of her woven labels to my collection of late (I swear she used my cat for the black cat model!) Joy has sent a voucher for use in the online shop and a sticker pack for the lucky raffle winner.
Thank you so much to all our wonderful sponsors! To catch up with the first round of sponsors, check out my earlier post, and don’t worry; there are many more still to come!
