Back in September I went to the Remnant Kings AW15 fabric launch. Along with introducing us to the new fabric trends for AW15 we were given the chance to have a peek at their new sewing room!
We were treated to cupcakes and tea when we arrived and given a chance to have a wander round to look at the fabrics and haberdashery and mingle.
I got chatting to the lovely Lorraine who is the manager in the Falkirk store, she gave me lots of information about the workshops that the stores have to offer (including her store, which is my local store).
I was drawn to the tartan (surprise, surprise!) and the amazing glitter fabric!
Every member of staff sews themselves, meaning if you are unsure how well a certain fabric will work for a particular garment, or are even just looking for a bit of advice on how much material you will need they can help.
I couldn’t leave without trying my hand at a bit of a sewing, it has been years since I have used my sewing machine! The sewing room was open so we could all have a shot of making our own bag. I think for my first attempt in years I did not too badly.
