Space to Sew Shrewsbury

Space to Sew, a Shrewsbury based sewing tuition business and club, has launched a new series of business seminars aimed at small or home based sewing craft entrepreneurs.  Now celebrating two years in business, Space to Sew Owner Domini Lucas is keen to help other sewing-related small businesses and those thinking of launching one within the sector she loves.  “We wanted to celebrate our 2nd anniversary as a business with a series of evening seminars to help others who are sewing to sell make progress in the sector. Many people want to make a living out of the hobby they enjoy. We want to help them take the first steps in making their dream a reality. Spaces are limited to 12 so we would recommend booking early.  More information can be found on our website or you can book a place by calling 01743 588595”.

The first seminar, Customer Service and the Competitive Edge by Rosie Beswick of Seek it Out is on Wednesday 5th February 2014 from 6-9pm.   It will help small sewing businesses develop their niche and customer service to deliver a competitive edge online. Rosie has over 25 years of experience in running a business, including her own business consultancy and now with successful online retail company Seek It Out.

The second Space to Sew business seminar is, How do you move from your kitchen table to the marketplace? by Angela Lewis of local company Little Hippo, on Wednesday 5th March 2014This second seminar will focus more on physical retailing, how to make products that sell and developing a brand.  Angela is experienced at helping others achieve their small business dreams. She has successfully supported over 100 artists and makers take themselves off their kitchen table and into the market place. 

As well as business seminars Space to Sew also offers a variety of ways to develop your sewing skills whether you are interested in dressmaking, furnishings, creative sewing or overlocking. 

Space to Sew was launched in 2012 when Mrs Lucas moved to Shrewsbury from London.  She had attended a sewing club at The Sewing Rooms in London previously and wanted to share a similar flexible and social way to learn in the town while continuing to extend her sewing skills herself.
