           Announcing The Sew Essential Sewing Meet

I'm super excited to announce today that Sew Essential have launched the #SewEssentialMeet. If you love sewing, sewing shopping, trying out new skills plus meeting fellow sewists, this is the meet for you.

The #SewEssentialMeet  will be hosted by Sew Essential at their showroom nr Leicester with myself and Kat from AKraftyKat . I've been really excited about sharing this, I visit the showroom last week and the shopping experience is incredible! We have tried to make the day varied and for all levels of sewist with a lovely afternoon tea included for good measure.

So over to Lucy at Sew Essential to tell you more about the day...

' The day will start at 11:30am with coffee, tea, pastries courtesy of Sew Essential and, if you wish, time for shopping in our Aladdin's Cave (AKA warehouse) of goodies. We'll then head upstairs to our showroom for some hand hoop embroidery (basic kit provided by Sew Essential), a demonstration of the new Husqvarna Epic embroidery machine for anyone who would like to see it in action (we're not expecting anyone to buy one, but thought it may be of interest to see the Rolls Royce of embroidery machines!) and the opportunity to discuss Angela's embroidery machine makes with the talented lady herself.

After much tea, chatter and craft we'll head out for a vintage afternoon tea at the Lakeside bistro just around the corner at 3:30pm. Vintage table linen and china plus cakes, scones, sandwiches and endless tea and coffee in delightful surroundings with like minded crafty folk - what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?! The fun doesn't stop there though - we're also putting together goody bags for our lovely attendees to take home and enjoy after the event!

Sew Essential Meet
