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!

Follow us on Instagram to get all the latest Big Sew Off news, and find out how you can get involved! Sewalong with us from your home, set up your own sewing hub, and keep an eye on our social channels for live updates throughout the 24 hours from 10am on Monday 4th, to 10am on Tuesday 5th September. You’ll be able to sponsor us to spur us on, and the garments we make on the day will also go towards raising funds for two amazing charities.

This year we have decided to spread The Big Sew Off love across two different charities:
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.

The Trussell Trust is a charity doing amazing work to stock up food banks across the country for those in need. At a time when many people are struggling with the rising cost of living, we are keen to help out by raising money for a charity doing such essential work.

We are very excited to put our sewing skills to good use and bring back The Big Sew Off, hoping you’ll join us from your corners of the world, to celebrate sewing and raise money for a great cause.

Whether you sew along from home to spread the word about The Big Sew Off, or donate to keep us going, you can help us raise funds for two charities who are doing incredible and much needed work.
