We love the fact that you can touch and feel fabrics, check out colour and texture combinations and get that all-important expert advice from those in the know – our sewing retailers. I’m proud to support Sew Saturday as these stores hold a treasure trove of sewing goodies and are great places to learn about the art of stitching.”
