Introducing our Thursday night Sewing Social!

I’m so excited to launch a new social club for sewers on Thursday nights! Sewing with friends (and making friends through sewing) is the best, but lugging your machine all over London? Definitely not the best. Sign up for our weekly Sewing Social and all you need to bring is your project! We have Janome sewing machines, overlockers, all the tools you need and ample cutting space. Come to think of it, we have fabric and patterns too, so you don’t actually even need to bring a project…

Thursday night sewing social

Places are £8 per hour and you can book in here for our first event on Thursday, 15 February. You can use the time to sew, trace a pattern, cut out patchwork, press your seams or hand-stitch your hems – whatever you’re in the mood for! But please remember: this is not a class. You must know how to use a sewing machine if you plan to use one, although you can always count on your fellow sewers to offer advice when you get a bit stuck!

We are also looking for volunteer hosts! Hosts will be able to attend for free and will be responsible for making sure everyone feels welcome and included and helping us promote the evenings they are hosting. There will always be a member of staff in the shop, but Thursdays can be busy so we’ll count on our hosts to help us keep things running smoothly! Get in touch at [email protected] and tell us a little about yourself if you’re interested in hosting.

Our Anniversary Sale Event is tomorrow!

Can you believe it’s been a year since we opened our beautiful West Hampstead Square shop? We have a huge day planned for you on Saturday, full of offers, giveaways, bubbly and more. We can’t wait to see you!

But first, take a trip down memory lane with us…

Here is the state of the shop when we started our fit out on 6 December 2016. Yikes!

After the fit out (which you can see in progress on Instagram at #tvhatwhs if you scroll back) the shop looked like this on 13 January. At this point, we were closer to being ready than our lobby, so we had to wait…

This is after one day of moving and unpacking on 25 January.

And here is how we left the shop when we closed up on Friday, 27 January. Ready to open our doors to the public on Saturday, 28 January!

We really hope you’ll come in and see what our shop looks like one year on! Read on to find out what we have planned for you!
