Exploring the all of sewing events Me Made Makes has to offer: Bag Making Sewcials, Retreats and Workshops

Welcome to Me Made Makes, where creativity meets community! As a passionate advocate of the amazing world of bag making, I am often asked about to the variety of sewing events available through the website, each one has been created to meet the needs and preferences of you as a bag maker, and I thought this would be a great place to discuss the differences of each event. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting your stitching journey, there's something for everyone in my lineup of retreats, sewcials, and workshops.

Some of the lovely attendees from a previous retreat.

Bag Making Retreats: Unwind, Sew, Repeat

Imagine a weekend getaway nestled in lovely surroundings, where the only thing on your agenda is stitching up your latest masterpiece. That's the essence of the sewing retreats. Held over a blissful weekend, the retreats provide the ultimate escape for sewing and bag making enthusiasts.

Picture yourself surrounded by like-minded individuals, all fueled by a shared passion for crafting. Whether you're stitching in the sewing space or enjoying the fresh air in the beautiful surrounding, inspiration is always at your fingertips.

But it's not just about the sewing – it's about the experience. Indulge in delicious meals, from hearty breakfasts to delicious dinners, all included in your retreat package. And when the day's work is done, retreat to your comfortable accommodation for a well-deserved rest.

The bag making retreats are informal and aren't a tutored event, its an opportunity to get away from all it, bring your latest projects and just enjoy the company of other like minded people.

I am currently taking a break from organising retreats but please keep an eye on the website for future dates and information.

Sewcials: A Day of Stitching and Socialising.

For those who crave the camaraderie of fellow stitchers but prefer a shorter commitment, the sewcials are the perfect solution. Held at Penshaw Masonic Hall, DH4 7LQ, these one-day sewcials are a fab mix of creativity and connection.

Bring along your current projects and dive into a day of uninterrupted sewing bliss. With cutting and ironing stations at your disposal, you'll have everything you need to bring your visions to life. And let's not forget the most important part – the tea and cake! Fuel your creativity with sweet treats and endless cups of tea, all served with a side of laughter and friendship. The sewing sewcials are proving really popular but I keep numbers small to ensure an intimate experience for all.

Bag Making Workshops: Master the Art of Bag Making.

Ready to take your skills to the next level? The Bag making workshops which are to be released later in the year, are here to guide you on your bag-making journey. Led by your experienced tutor, these immersive classes are designed to teach you essential techniques while completing a beautiful bag project.

Whether you're a beginner eager to learn the basics or an advanced stitcher looking to refine your craft, the bag making workshops will cater to all skill levels. From selecting the perfect fabrics to mastering intricate bag making techniques, you'll walk away with both newfound knowledge and a stunning creation to call your own. Each bag making workshop will be designed for a level of skill, with specific learning outcomes to ensure every participant, has not only an enjoyable experience but leaves the workshop with new found skills and confidence. Dates and venue to be announced soon details will be added to the website upon release.

At Me Made Makes, sewing events are more than just gatherings – they're opportunities to connect, create, and cultivate your passion for bag making. Whether you're seeking a serene retreat, a welcoming sewcial, or an educational workshop, I have something special in store for you.

Join me for an unforgettable experience where stitches become stories and friendships are sewn with every seam. See you at the sewing table!

Until next time happy sewing and may your bobbin always be full
