Sewing Tour – Sew Over It London

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Next we made our way to visit Lisa Comfort at Sew Over It. This is a gorgeous shop, it is so cute and pink and filled with all things sewing! It also has a delicious sewing cafe inside where the cakes are made by local bakers.

Lisa fell in love with sewing when she was 11 and made her first skirt. A year later her parents gave her a sewing machine and she has never looked back since.

Lisa started Sew Over It in a response to the growing feeling that sewing was becoming a lost skill. Lisa hopes to pass on her passion for sewing through Sew Over It and encourage more people in London to pick up a needle and thread!

Meet Lisa in the video interview below and learn about her most recent project – the launch of her first sewing book!

Take a tour of Sew Over It and check out inspirational projects students making in the video below.

Sew Over It consists of an upstairs shop and sewing class area as well as a gorgeous downstairs sewing room which is just so pretty in pink!

Great feature wall – Just Keep Sewing, Sewing , Sewing!

A table full of buttons and haberdashery that trick the kids into thinking they are sweets!

Sew Over It – range of sewing classes available.

Thank you Lisa for a lovely visit to Sew Over It, we look forward to visiting again soon.

We highly recommend visiting Lisa at Sew Over It to join a sewing class, enjoy a cup of tea and cake and look through the assortment of fabrics and haberdashery!
