Michelle Baker will be joining the Girls Around Town after 11am to talk about upcoming events and workshops at her Crafty Betty studios in Newark. And top of the list will be the one that’s happening on Saturday 17 October.
With activities for stitchers of all ages and abilities, Sew Saturday at Crafty Betty is part of a national campaign to raise the profile of sewing stores across the country. Pop over to The Arcade any time between 2pm and 6pm and you’ll find plenty of things to interest and inspire you – from demonstrations and workshops to a craft fair and even a Sewing Bee.
With free goody bags and a raffle in aid of the Sam White Legacy, not to mention some delicious cupcakes too, there’ll be lots to see and do throughout the afternoon.
June, Tina and Sue will all be putting in an appearance after their show – and no, not just for the cupcakes! They’ll be channelling their inner May Martin, of The Great British Sewing Bee fame, stepping up to judge the entries in the competition to Make a Patchwork Cushion.
Although they probably won’t say no to a cupcake to fortify themselves for the task…
Tune in or listen online from 10am to 1pm on Saturday to find out more. Meanwhile, there’s still time to have a go at one of the various competitions – the closing date is now Friday 16 October so why not visit the website for all the details and download the free patterns for your entry?
