Visit Our Shop in Islington!
In December 2017 we moved from our shop on Myddelton Street to a lovely new space on Essex Road. Here you can take classes and buy fabrics, haberdashery, patterns and kits.
Sew Over It is located near the top of Essex Road. We are a 6 minute walk from Essex Road station, 10 minutes from Canonbury, 15 minutes from Dalston Junction and just under 20 minutes from Highbury and Islington. Bus-wise we are served by the 38, 56, 73, 76, 341 and 476 buses. The bus journey from Angel Station takes around 10 minutes.
Visit Our Sewing Cafe
Work on your sewing projects at Sew Over It!
No room to work on your project at home? Don’t have the right equipment? Then why not come and work in our sewing café? Benefit from the use of the space, easy-to-use Janome sewing machines and overlockers and large tables to work on. You can also borrow our scissors, rulers, pattern masters, and large array of sewing machine feet and other general sewing tools.
The price is £6 an hour including unlimited cups of tea and coffee!
Please note, our sewing cafe is not for absolute beginners. You will need to have basic sewing machine skills already. We are not able to provide help with sewing projects, but if there is a problem with the machine we will of course help to sort it out.
Our Sewing Cafe is open every Friday between 1pm – 5pm. For the foreseeable future our Sewing Cafe will not run on any other day apart from Friday.
On the odd occasion, due to other events, the Sewing Cafe may not run, so we always recommend you get in touch before you plan on stopping by to avoid disappointment!
