Dispatched at the end of October 2022 your advent box will arrive with you in plenty of time.
Rather than a daily gift, you will receive a weekly parcel to open throughout the month of advent containing supplies for a mystery project.
Every Sunday a new video and instruction sheet will be uploaded to your own personal learning portal and you can choose to work on your project for an hour or so that day, or eek out your crafting across the week. (Alternatively, you can save up all your parcels and have a big sewing weekend in the New Year. However, you do risk seeing what other people have been making if you do this and the mystery element will be gone).
By the end of advent, you will have completed your project and should be looking forward to opening your Christmas day gift. This will also be materials and a video/instructions to make a little extra something to go along with your main project.
All we will say about the project is that it is a ‘thing’. It’s not a garment or an accessory and it’s suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing to complete. You will receive everything you need to make it in your box and will simply need to supply a sewing machine, fabric scissors, and pins/clips.
For those of you who are more experienced sewers we will offer you opportunities to enhance your project in other ways and will always mention these in the instructional videos. (You may need to use some of your own materials in order to do this) If you are a member of our sewing club, then there will be lots of opportunities to include some of the methods you have learnt into the project if you so wish.
Video upload days will be as follows:
Sunday 27th Nov
Sunday 4th Dec
Sunday 11th Dec
Sunday 18th December
Sunday 25th December – Xmas gift
We recommend you open each weeks parcel on the Sunday and decide when you wish to sew in the week following.
Is it a festive project? No it’s a year-round project no festive theme at all
Can we choose the colour? No it is a riotous project of lots of colours and no 2 will be exactly the same
