You will find some little extras in your next printed MIY Collection sewing pattern:
- a fabric shopping checklist to make sure you pick the right fabric for your pattern (for patterns that use knit fabrics)
- a comprehensive guide on how to take your measurements with an explanation of that mysterious thing called ease.
Just because. Every little helps doesn’t it?!

Just in time for last posting for Christmas I’ve got the Brightside Shrug Kit online and available to buy at MIY Collection.
The complete making kit comes with a paper copy of the Brightside pattern, enough beautiful quality lightweight sweatshirt fabric in a choice of colours to make one shrug and matching thread all for £45. It comes gift boxed and delivered to your door for free (in the UK)!!
Perfect for impatient stitchers who don’t want to worry about fabric shopping for the right fabric or a great gift for new dressmakers. I’ve had students at MIY Workshop make these in a 2 hour class!!
Last posting date for Christmas delivery is Monday 21st.

The weather’s finally turned into winter in the UK, so it’s time to think about warm sewing. Winter dressmaking projects can often be long and complicated, so here’s the antidote – the Parkwood Cowl.
Takes just 1m of fabric and can be made all in one fabric, reversible or with contrast panels.
There’s just one pattern piece with all the variations marked on and it sews up super quick with only 4 pieces, making it great for beginners and an ideal project for your homemade Christmas gift sewing (every year lots of MIY Workshop students do exactly that!).
The Parkwood Cowl is available as a printed paper pattern for £15….
….a pdf instant download pattern for £9…..
….and is also the first MIY Collection Kit!
The kit contains a printed Parkwood pattern, specially selected beautiful quality bouclé wool mix fabric in a choice of burgundy, grey or teal and matching colour thread. Even better it will be delivered to your door beautifully packaged in a sturdy gift box, all for just £55. Perfect if you want to get sewing straight away without worrying about fabric shopping, or the ideal gift for a beginner stitcher.
