How you can get involved

We’d love you to get involved in The Big Sew Off in your sewing communities, wherever you are in the world. Whether you sew along from home, organise a sewing fundraising, or donate to spur us on, you can help us raise funds for Mind, a charity providing mental health support for anyone in need.

Donate Now

The Sew Over It team and other sewing businesses and personalities will be sewing for 24 hours non-stop from 10am on Monday 4th, to 10am on Tuesday 5th September 2023 from The Big Sew Off HQ at The New Craft House in London. Sponsor us using the Donate button or sew along from home and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. Sew on your own, in your sewing group or look out for your local sewing shops to see if they have an event in your area. There are lots of hubs that you could join in the UK:

Birmingham Hub
Dunfermline Hub
Brentwood Hub
Glasgow Hub
London Hub
Worthing Hub
Diss Hub

The Big Sew Off 2023

There will be a live YouTube feed from the central hub on the Sew Over It channel and lots of chats and lives on Instagram coming from throughout the 24 hours from The Big Sew Off HQ. Join us on the day and sew along with us. Don’t worry, we don’t expect everyone to sew for 24 hours, just sew for as long as you can to help us fundraise for two amazing charities!

Follow us on Instagram @thebigsewoff and @sewoveritlondon and use the hashtag #thebigsewoff to tell us about what you’re doing to join The Big Sew Off!

Whatever you do, you can make a real difference in helping us to support a great charity through your love of sewing.

Do you have big fundraising plans? You can join our JustGiving page to fundraise with us!

Big Sew Off Labels

We’ve partnered up with the amazing Sew Anonymous to create some exclusive Big Sew Off sew-in labels that you can add to what you make during our sewathon as a reminder of your participation in this amazing cause. All profits from the sale of these labels will be donated to mental health charity Mind!
