Come and join our social sewing community at the Preloved Studio. We’re tackling textiles waste by growing our sewing skills to repair our loved clothing items and making new items to love from scrap and donated fabrics.

Time & Location

25 Jun 2024, 10:00 – 12:30

Canons House, 19 Madeira Rd, Mitcham CR4 4HD, UK

About the event

Beginner to intermediate sewists assemble! Bring your sewing project to our Preloved Studio in the beautiful Canons House, Mitcham, and get acquainted with our sewing machines and cutting room. We’ll have skilled volunteers on hand to share their tips and tricks and troubleshoot any sewing worries.

Registration is not needed, but we have a limited number of sewing machines. Machines can always be shared between new sewing friends so everyone can progress their projects. 

Want to come along but don’t have a project in mind? We have a number of patterns available at the studio for small sewing projects that are great to practice. 

Meet your Drop-In Session Leads:

Fiona Graham

Fiona has many years’ experience in the clothing and home textiles industry and has a lifelong love of sewing and making things. She worked in manufacturing, and in product development for major high street retailers. She has a wide knowledge of all garment types and sewing techniques to share!

Important Information for Drop-In Session Attendees:

These morning sessions are for people with beginner to intermediate sewing skills. Some previous sewing experience is recommended for these Drop-In sessions. The sessions are perfect for people who want to improve on their existing skills. If you have never used a sewing machine before, please attend one of our free Sewing Machine 101 workshops first. We host these workshops through the year, so take a look at our events page to register. 

This event is for adults only (18+). Sadly, we do not have the facilities to accommodate children during the sessions.

You can arrive at the Preloved Studio at any time during the session.

Sewing tools and equipment are provided by the Preloved Studio during the sessions.

Please clean and iron any of your own fabrics before you bring them to the studio to work on. Some Preloved Studio fabric scraps and remnants may be available for you to use if needed.

The Preloved Studio is made possible with the support of the Canons House and Grounds and Merton Council.
