I’m having a HUGE sewing destash sale over two Sundays (10th & 24th November) from 10am to 4pm at Sew In The City in Sheffield (771 Abbeydale Road, S7 2BG).

Everything that’s up for grabs (fabrics, tools, books, samples) is from my own personal collection and just so you know, I don’t buy tat, I believe in quality over quantity every time. So I can assure you that everything of mine in this sale is really great quality, it’s just that I no longer have room to store it all!!

Here’s a small selection of what will be available…..


There are some amazing quality dressmaking fabrics, including wovens, knits, some silk, some 100% wool coating, high quality viscose ponte roma, fake sheepskin – many cut lengths, 1m to 2m and loads of “fill a bag” off-cuts.

Prices will range from £5 to fill a bag of off-cuts to £12 for larger pieces of high quality fabrics (like the 100% wool serge).


A large collection of handmade (by me!)  photo sample garments from my books and patterns will be available to buy. These are one-of-a-kind pieces made to my usual high standards.  Garments included are from my first 2 books (Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking and Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts) and many of my MIY Collection sewing patterns:  skirts, dresses, trousers, accessories, jackets and t-shirts.

Prices will range from £5 to £15. There will be facilities for you to try garments on for size.


Lots of general sewing and textile equipment and supplies will be in the sale: a small mannequin, needle felting supplies, knitting looms, pattern cutting rulers and set squares.

Prices will range from £5 to £15 (except the mannequin).

I have a huge amount of books and will be parting with some of them. There will be books galore (way more than in this photo), both vintage and current titles on all things textiles: fashion design, knitting, crochet, macrame, dressmaking and embroidery.

Book prices will range from £3 to £10, depending on size, age and condition.

As you can see, everything will be PRICED TO SELL which means HUGE BARGAINS to be had!! It’s first come first served and when it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Hope to see you there!

Have a look at the sale event on my Facebook page where I’ll also be regularly posting new photos of things going in the sale as I’m getting it all organised……
