In the mean-time we'd love to invite you to celebrate our 3rd Birthday at our ZOOM party on Thursday 24th June - we'll be hosting a live pattern-cutting demonstration as well as games and prizes. Tickets are £5 and include entry to a raffle with all proceeds going to Solace Women's Aid

If you are interested in the combination of fashion history and pattern-cutting you might also be interested in our collaboration with the V&A fashion exhibition program producing sewing patterns to accompany their exhibitions, and the best thing is - they are all available to download for free from the V&A website!
