*whispers it* Start sewing for Christmas!

Fabric advent calendar tutorial fig 1

Every year we embark on our annual quest to plan ahead more with our festive sewing projects. Luckily our sister TV channel Sewing Quarter are here to help. They’re hosting a week of festive projects, demos and kits, starting this Wednesday…

Start your mid-year festive countdown clocks here! Sewing Quarter’s Christmas in July event went down so well last year that it’s returning for five days of festive sewing shows.

Tune in from Wednesday 11th July at 8am to see on-air demos and project kits for the holiday season, including advent calendars, elf stockings, festive quilts and even the perfect Christmas party dress.

With 8 hours of Christmas-themed sewing TV for five days, this should help us get ahead and avoid those midnight sewing marathons in the run up to Christmas this year! You can watch live on Freeview channel 73, Sky channel 687 or online at www.sewingquarter.com.
