Event description

Description

Bedford is doing its own version of the popular TV show, to raise money for the fantastic Bedford Hospitals Charity.

Come and join in a fun evening of sewing. You will have 2 hours to complete a cushion. The brief is open - there will be plenty of design ideas for you to be inspired by, or you can choose to make someone a cushion as a gift that reflects the person it is meant for.

Help will be on hand, and beginners are welcome to join in.

Sadly, Patrick won't be there. But there will be GIN for the prize, if that helps?!

Participants can either supply their own materials, or, buy a basic cushion kit (including insert) on the night and have access to a shared haberdashery. There will also be a free upcycling fabric table on the night, too, for people to help themselves to. Any participants happy to bring a fabric/trims donation would be brilliant, as this will keep costs down.

To enter - £10 MINIMUM DONATION to Bedford Hospitals Charity. All money paid through this site will be given to the charity. If you need fabric to sew with, let us know - you can pre-order a fabric pack for the night at a small cost to cover materials. Alternatively, you can bring fabric or something to upcycle into a cushion.

At the end of the night, there will be a quick judging for the best cushion to work out who gets the gin. You can take your cushions home, or, can opt to donate it to be sold to raise more money for the hospital. Cushions may be sold for £5 upwards - there might even be an inpromptu auction if there is a pillow fight brewing over who wants the most popular ones!

Please come! And bring your friends... If you have friends who fancy it but can't sew, or don't have a machine, but you can/do - please feel free to bend the rules and team up and offer them help. The more the merrier, and the aim is to have fun and raise tons of cash for a great local cause we all end up benefitting from.
