Last Saturday we teamed up with one of our local favourites @crushes_shop to host a sewing workshop with 9 of their Crushes Social Club members. It was a true delight to facilitate this workshop with our partner Crushes and their community and to see the smile on everyone's faces as they left with a scrunchie they made themselves!
A handful budding sewers joined us in creating scrunchies based off our @liam.liampatterns patterns using RUBY fabric offcuts. For many, it was their first time handling a needle & machine! Thank you to everyone who joined us in making this workshop so special x
"It was so genuinely fulfilling to teach people a skill as important as sewing. The amount of progress people made from being absolute beginners to successfully creating their project within a few hours was so inspiring, and just shows that anyone can sew. Would be so happy spending every Saturday doing a workshop like that." - Skye Lovatt

It was a great reminder there is nothing like teaching someone a new skill. Especially sewing. The more people who can sew, the greater capacity there is for mending, upcycling, creativity, and an understanding of the value and skills in the fashion industry.
This is the true foundation of Liam Patterns. A collection to sew clothes at home underpinned by circular design solutions and building community." - Briar Lloyd
