Sewing Bee

WI for the Modern Woman

Do you sew, or would you like to learn how to?

The Sewing Bee is usually held on the first Friday of the month from 10-1pm at the Great Warley Rectory Hall, Great Warley Street, CM13 3JP (directly opposite St Mary’s Church).

Each month we will have a project session if you wish to join in, otherwise you may bring your own current project to work on or simply come for chat and be inspired by others

This is a friendly, informal drop in session where we will have sewing machines and lashings of tea, biscuits, cake, chatter and laughter.  There will be a £2 charge each session to cover the hire of the hall.

Future projects will be guided by what you would like to do but could include bags, clothing, memory cushions, sewing machine covers, quilts…..and anything else you can think of!


Great Belles Sewing Bee Challenge

Grab yourself a pattern and some fabric and spend the day with us making a garment of clothing.  Experienced or never used a machine before come along for a whole session of sewing between 10-3pm.

Eco Friendly Projects

Find out about making some great environmentally friendly projects.  Make some reusable make up remover pads, unpaper towels and unsponges for the kitchen and also, but not really sewing related, we may also be making beeswax wraps!!!  Come and join us for a great morning of sewing and friendly chit chat.
