Uni­ver­sity plays host to new sewing event

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Uni­ver­sity is host­ing a new sewing event that aims to cel­e­brate the on­line stitch­ing com­mu­nity and the hobby that can be more ben­e­fi­cial than it ‘seams’.

Held in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sew Es­sen­tial and New Vin­tage Sewing, ‘The Stitch Room SEW­cial’ on June 15 and June 16 will wel­come an ar­ray of blog­gers and writ­ers that spe­cialise in dress-mak­ing.

From in­dus­trial ma­chine demon­stra­tions to tours of the Uni­ver­sity’s fa­cil­i­ties, to a fab­ric swap over a slice of cake and a chance to work on cur­rent projects, a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties will take place across the two days.

In­de­pen­dent sewing pat­tern and tex­tile de­signer Mar­illa Walker will be speak­ing at the event and the Uni­ver­sity’s Tech­ni­cal Tu­tor in Tex­tiles Anne Acosta will also be on hand to of­fer her cre­ative and tech­ni­cal wis­dom.

Six­teen blog­gers are attending The Stitch Room SEW­cial. If suc­cess­ful, it is hoped it may be­come an an­nual event that is open to a wider au­di­ence.
