Event description

Description

The first one went so well, we thought we'd do it again!

A chance for the sewists, sewers and dressmakers of Leeds to meet up, chat, shop, drink tea, swap fabric and patterns, eat pizza and raise money for charity with lots of other like minded souls, and no one to tell you off for stroking the fabric in the fabric shops!

As last time around, we'll meet up on Saturday morning in the Costa Coffee on Briggate, then head off around the markets area, potentially swinging into some of the bricks and mortar stores before heading up to the Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen, where there will be a fabric and pattern swap and a raffle to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Full details and timings can be found on our Facebook page nearer the event. (Belgrave Music Hall will also have pizza for sale....)

Tickets are entirely free; however, registering for a ticket allows us to have an idea of how many people to expect when we're putting together goody bags so please do sign up.

You will be asked for your contact details when registering for a ticket; if you give us your permission (no problem if you don't!) whatever details you're happy to share will be provided to other attendees so you can get in touch again after the event if you realise on the train home that you didn't get the name or details of that person you had a lovely chat with!

FAQs

Where is the event?

This is a slightly mobile event; we meet at 10 at Costa Coffee on Briggate (LS1 6BR), head around the shops and market in groups on a very ad hoc basis and then head up to Belgrave Music Hall (LS2 8JP) later on.


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

The event is entirely within Leeds City Centre; the Costa is around 5 minutes walk from the train station in the main shopping area; Belgrave Music Hall is around a further 5 minutes from there. If you're driving, look for any of the city centre car parks; the Merrion Centre car park near the arena will be one of the closest to the final venue, the markets car park or the John Lewis car park are near the start.


What can I bring into the event?

If you have any surplus or unwanted fabric or patterns, please do bring them along as we'll be running a swap once again and something you no longer love might be exactly what someone else is looking for.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Becca and Sally can be contacted through the Facebook page; please bear in mind that this isn't anything other than an extension of our sewing obsessions, rather than in any way a money earner, so we might not always repsond instantly but we will get back to you as fast as our working / parenting / sewing lives allow.

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

No, but it does help us enormously if you register so we know you're coming.
