It’s seven days ‘til The Great British Sewing Bee (GBSB) Live – not that we’re counting! If you haven’t grabbed your ticket yet, there’s still time to get one. If you have, you’re probably wondering which stands to visit. Here’s our round-up of the top stands to check out while you’re there.
The Fold Line
The Fold Line is a hub for all things sewing, where you can get inspiration for your next dressmaking project. Visit Rachel and Kate at the show for the ultimate fabric and pattern swap, to get help with your dressmaking project, and take part in some fun sewing games. The stand will be the meet up point for the sewing community at the show, so pop by to say hello. The first 50 sewists who visit each day will also receive a free gift! Find them at stand F8.
I Am Patterns
Shh! We’ll let you in on a secret: I Am Patterns is launching its new collection at GBSB Live. The French designers are set to showcase ‘I AM WILD’, a collection inspired by nature and the wilderness, that includes six new patterns. It’s a chance to unleash your wild side. Visit them at stand E19.
Print Me Pretty
Fancy getting your designs printed onto fabric? Print Me Pretty can transfer your design to 130gsm and 195gsm plain cotton and tea towel fabric. You can make your designs available for others to buy and earn commission on sales. They’ve also got an online market place where you can buy from hundreds of designs. Use the code MOLLIEGBSB during the show to get 15% off orders over £10. Check out their printing presentation and fabric sale during the show too. Say hi to them at stand G1.
Get the most out of your clothes with Flatter, a starch-free smoothing spray that relaxes wrinkles and freshens fabrics. The spray, from Canadian company Soak, will leave your fabric sleek, soft and static-free. Even better, it’s kind to sensitive skin and won’t harm the environment either. Smoothing spray that’s flat-out fabulous! See them at stand F7.
Come and meet the Avid Seamstress team, a London-based sewing pattern company specialising in sewing patterns for modern women. They have lots to offer at GBSB Live, including all their printed patterns available to buy, and fabulous competitions, like the chance to win a complete pattern bundle.
