We are honoured to have the Crafty Sew and So ladies in the podcast nook today!
Both Sarah and Freya are very open and chatty about their sewing stories, life before their business, buying a shop with someone you have just met and their sewing patterns.
It’s really inspiring to hear how they took the skills they learnt from their retail and clothing company backgrounds to create a brilliant bricks and mortar fabric and haberdashery shop with workshops, parties and now their own pattern line – My Handmade Wardrobe too.
We originally were bringing on our guests from Leicester to help promote their upcoming epic party – The Dressmakers Ball but they sold out of tickets in record time so instead we get to hear exclusives about what the lucky ticket holders are to expect and if they can win a SEWING MACHINE like Megan did at the last one!! 😉
There is lots of good stuff coming up for these two and their bravery in business is encouraging to us all!
This episode is sponsored by Pfaff who make amazing sewing machines for all styles. There are overlockers, coverstitch machines and embroidery machines for beginners to keen sewers. We both love Pfaff machines and couldn’t recommend them enough – they sew through any fabric like it’s quilting cotton, that’ll be down to the IDT, the integrated walking-foot.
Go visit their amazing range at www.pfaff.com
