I thought it would be fun to have a few pals who love Cleo over to our studio so we could spend a day sewing, chatting and generally having the best time. And then I thought it would be even better if you could come to - as there's only so many sewing machines in my studio, and it's not easy for everyone to get to London, we're going to have the sewing party on Instagram as well!
Saturday 26 November, from 11am GMT onwards (or earlier if you're keen!)
On Instagram and Instagram Stories - tag us @TillyButtons using the hashtag #SewingCleo
How do I take part?
Make a Cleo dress on the day, and share pics and vids of your work in progress and finished makes on Instagram and Instagram Stories. I'm going to be posting updates throughout the day - you can ask me questions if you get stuck on any steps. Ooh and you could also have your own Cleo sewing party at your house and invite friends - that would be so fun to see what you're up to and say hi!
Hope you can make it!
In other news, we've been nominated for 'Sewing Designer of the Year' in the British Craft Awards. OMG! It's the first time there has been a sewing category in these awards (!) so we're particularly excited to be in the running. It would be amazing if you'd like to vote for us - click 'sewing' and then vote in as many categories as you like. You can also enter the prize draw to win a £100 Amazon gift voucher :)
This is different to the British Sewing Awards (potentially confusing, I know!), for which we're up for Best Pattern House, Best Blog and Favourite Sewing Personality. If you'd like to vote for us in both, that would be incredible!
I really appreciate your support in helping us to do what we do and keep creating sewing goodies for you to enjoy. Thank you! x x x
