Event description

Description

The sewing social event returns for another year!

This is a chance for sewists to meet for chat, coffee, shopping and the legendary fabric swap and charity raffle!

We meet bright and early in the 4th floor cafe at John Lewis, Leeds for chat and coffee before heading out into the sewing shops of Leeds city centre. We meet up again en masse at the Water Lane Boathouse, where there will be a fabric and pattern swap table and we will hold our fabulous charity raffle in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Spare some pennies for raffle tickets because we have some incredible prizes lined up!

Please note that this is a ticketed event for all those planning on joining us at the Water Lane Boathouse; we have a cap on numbers there for health and safety reasons. We are also unable to sell raffle tickets in advance of the day.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No there are no such requirements

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The event is based in Leeds city centre so rail access would be to the city centre train station, which is very close to the final venue. The bus station is just behind our John Lewis meeting point. Nearest car parks to the final venue would be Q-Park Sovereign Square, Citipark on Whitehall Road or the Globe Road car park; the John Lewis car park or the Markets NCP are nearest to our initial meeting point

Is this an accessible event?

This is a city centre event so the market or shops may or may not be accessible, depending on where you head to. John Lewis has a lift that will take you to and from the 4th floor cafe. The area we have reserved at the Water Lane Boathouse is upstairs; however, we also have some tables reserved in the downstairs area so you would be able to access those.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please message our Facebook page www.facebook.com/SewUpNorth

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No there is no need : we would ask you to be honest about whether or not you have a ticket at our final venue so that we don't cause health and safety issues.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes that's fine; in particular, please keep your email address up to date so that we can email out final information and please do let us know if you can't make it any more; we had significantly more demand than space last year so would love to be able to reoffer tickets if your plans change.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Your ticket can be passed to someone else but please do let us know if you no longer plan to attend.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes that's fine.
