Imagine a space where you can put to one side any mind-monkeys, and take time out for you.

Sharing a virtual cuppa with like-minded souls, while allowing your creative process to flow through your hands, one stitch at a time.  

Discover with us the sheer joy of choosing fabric treasures and threads. Of allowing the slow rhythm of hand-sewing to slow down your breathing - and ultimately, your busy mind.  

In this delightfully mindful and contemplative practice, there are no fancy stitches to follow, no sewing projects to choose from (or keep up with!) … and no experience needed. Just a willingness to turn up with your scraps of fabric and an open heart.  

Indulge in some SlowSew time: 60 minutes away from the hustle-bustle of life.  Make a date in your diary for every 2nd Thursday of each month (12.30pm UK time)!  

Please kindly note: this is a space to slow down and SlowSew. It is not offered as a workshop - just a space to gather in a virtual circle and chat amongst ourselves while we stitch (if you wish to).  

* Tools required: a sharp needle, some cotton or embroidery thread, scissors, fabric pieces or scraps that you are happy to repurpose.  

* Free guide: with your reminder email, you be able to download a very simple guide to get you started - perfect if you’re a newbie to sewing.  

* Community: you will also be invited to our online community, where you can chat inbetween gathering sessions.

Please kindly note: on this page (and in blog posts) I may share links to books that I think you’d love as much as I do. I use an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops, determined to keep them as an integral part of our culture and communities. If you choose to purchase a book by clicking on the links on this page, I may earn a few pennies from your purchase. This does not, in any way, affect the price you pay, or my view of the book. Please #shoplocal and support business in your community wherever possible.
