Manchester Sewing Circle

We are setting up a new Venture called The Manchester Sewing Circle.
A mixture of Make Do and Mend and Sewing Circle/Bee.
Our joint New Year's resolution at Crown & Country was to start sewing our own clothes again but with a combination of work and rustiness we’ve had trouble starting. After making a pattern and sewing aprons for our WI (more on that in a future post) and being obsessed with The Great British Sewing Bee we were re-galvanized to actually set up this group.
We found a million great lessons, craft groups and Knit and Natter’s around the Manchester area but we wanted to create a social space which would just be about sewing, where we could talk about making clothes, swap patterns, tips and techniques and share a cup of tea.
We are looking at some City Centre Locations right now probably for a week day evening but have arranged for our first meeting to be at the Creative Institute at The Old Northern Market’s Summer Garden Party on the 21st July. We will have a meet-up for interested people to talk about the group and what they would like from the group.
More updates of times etc will be published here soon, let us know if this is something you would like to be part of and when and where you think it should take place in the comments below or e-mail us at
Stay tuned for more updates.
