It’s been a grueling few weeks, but I am so excited to announce that Sew Over It Islington is here! We opened last weekend, and I thought I would share with you the festivities we ran to celebrate the big opening.
I spent every minute of the last week getting it ready – looking like a crazy woman – I drilled, painted, sanded, scrubbed, and gave everything I had to get it ready in time. And here it is…..
On the Thursday night before the big grand opening we had a little friends and family and press launch.
I got so many beautiful bouquets of flowers, including a really special one from all the team at Sew Over It.
We all enjoyed bubbly and some lovely cupcakes made by our baker Emily. I gave a little speech, Alex shed a tear and I almost cried. It was emotional!
Then on Saturday we opened the doors to the world and what a lovely turn out we had. We had mini sewing workshops going on all day in the classroom where we made lots of earrings, bunting and show/hair clips. Thank you to everyone who came – I really appreciate the support.
On Sunday I got to spend the afternoon sewing with some of my favourite sewing bloggers.
It was so lovely just to chat and sew and see what everyone was making – a nice break from all the DIY!
Thanks guys for being so enthusiastic and for trekking out on your Sunday afternoon.
So we are officially open. I am so excited to have started our adventures in Islington and I can’t wait to see what the North London future brings!
