It’s a brand new live event that brings together everyone with a passion for dressmaking tailoring, fashion and textiles. The event features judges and contestants from the TV series, a Super Theatre, workshops and demonstrations, drop-in clinics, fashion shows, garment galleries and over 200 dressmaking and sewing suppliers. It’s going to be THE dressmaking event of the year.

Come and meet the faces behind Madeit Patterns
An event like this is a first for Madeit Patterns and we are super excited. If you purchase any of our patterns at the show, not only will you receive an exclusive show discount but also a teeny tiny little treat, to add that professional touch to your handmade clothes.
Anna and I would love to meet you and talk sewing all day long. Find us at stand H47, but don’t be surprised if we’ve lost our voices by the last day of the show from constant chat, laughter and the general good time we’ll be having.
If you’ve already made one of our patterns, please wear it, we would LOVE to see how you or your child rock it. And we’ll have a little treat for you too 😉
Knock your socks off
But that’s not all, as well as our patterns, we will also be selling a small selection of snazzy socks (and tights), for kids to wear with their Spin Dress, Groove Dress, any dress in fact. Fancy socks are a ‘smart trick’ that make your outfits look amazing.
We only have a limited amount of socks, so come and see us early: Stand H47, near the Super Theatre.
