The Big Sew Off is coming back in September 2023. After the success of last year’s sewing marathon which raised £10k for mental health charity Mind, we’re going to do it all again! The Sew Over It team will be sewing for 24-hours non-stop, along with other exciting sewing businesses and personalities. The Big Sew Off this year will be hosted by the wonderful New Craft House in East London!

Mind is a charity very close to our hearts at Sew Over It, they provide help and support to anyone experiencing mental health problems in the UK. The last few years have been really tough on everyone’s mental health, and sewing has been a big help for many. We're excited to put our sewing skills to work for a great cause and we hope you'll join us!

We will be running a giveaway for all of those that have donated via our Just Giving page once the Big Sew Off is over. If you'd like to be included in the giveaway make sure that you leave your contact details so we can add you into the draw.
