The Burton Sewing Bee is an informal weekly drop-in for anyone who likes to sew!

Bring your own project and materials so you can stitch alongside other makers whilst learning from each other and sharing ideas. There’s no tutor and it’s not a class, but there will be someone on hand if you need help or guidance.

Sewing Bees used to be very popular in the age before technology; women used to come together to sew and socialise (sewcialise!) so this is what we’re trying to recreate. There is plenty of room for everyone who is hand-sewing, so there is no need to book, just turn up and sew!

There is space for 5 sewing machines, so booking is advised if you’d like to bring your machine along. * Please note, all electric machines used in the building must be PAT tested.

Sessions will run on Tuesday afternoons during term time from 1pm-3pm, starting on 31st October.

It is FREE to attend.
