Happy 1st Birthday Sew Creative!
On the 17th October Sew Creative in Lavant Street, Petersfield celebrated its first anniversary. This date also coincided with Sew Saturday, a national promotion to support your local sewing and fabric shop led by Sew magazine.
As well as free demonstrations on machine embroidery, patchworking, textile printing, felting, machine cleaning and a dressmaking challenge, there were balloons, badges,cake (made by customers) and tea and coffee all day! Many customers visited wearing garments made with fabric form the shop and there was a children’s fashion parade to celebrate their sewing achievements at Sew Creative. Unbeknown to owners Jo and Steve Watts, a team of WI members, the staff and customers had compiled a memory book of the first year, created a “mini me” bunting which is pride of place in the shop and finished off the day with a flash dance in the street outside the shop to ”here comes the girls”, “celebrate” and “happy birthday”. The shop closed to bubbles for all!
Jo said, “A massive thank you to our customers, our team and to the WI Denmead Belles for making this a fabulous,memorable day; where has that year gone!? It has been an amazing journey so far and we are delighted and overwhelmed by the wonderful level of customer support. We have even more exciting plans for the shop so please sign up for our newsletter to hear these first hand or visit our Facebook page;Sew Creative – Fabric and Workshop.”
