Saturday with baby lock

11.00am – GLOURIOUS GLORIA

baby lock’s newest combination overlock and Cover Stitch machine. You heard a combi machine was difficult to switch stitches? Not anymore! Babylock’s innovative new baby makes the whole thing EASY. Auto threading; auto tension…..what’s not to like? With the assurance of Japanese technology at its best, this machine pushes the boundaries of sewing as we know it.

13.00pm – THE ACCLAIM

The epitome of classy overlockers. Threading automatically on the loopers AND the needles! No tweaking necessary; whatever the thread, this sassy machine will give a perfect stitch time after time. Watch Jan make a zipped pouch on the overlocker.

14.30pm – SASHIKO – THE ULTIMATE QUILTING MACHINE

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese hand stitch. Now we can create a stitch that is a TRUE copy of the hand stitch; a stitch, a gap, a stitch. No need for invisible thread. This machine truly emulates a hand stitch. Use it for top stitching, quilting, seaming; you could always pretend to your threads that you had hand stitched that entire quilt!

Important Ticket Information – Covid-19

Due to the latest Government rulings in relation to Covid-19, we will be cancelling The Stitch Festival 2021, which was due to take place at the Business Design Centre from 25th – 28th February.

While this is very disappointing for our community of crafters, we are working hard to find lots of digital activity to get involved in until we can come together again.
