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 with us, organise a sewing fundraising, or donate to spur us on, you can help us raise funds for two incredible charities: Mind, who provide mental health support for anyone in need, and The Trussell Trust, who keep food banks across the country stocked up and are fighting to end UK hunger.

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 with us 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 will be a live YouTube feed on the Sew Over It channel and lots of chats and lives on Instagram coming from The Big Sew Off HQ in London throughout the 24 hours. 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 to support Mind and The Trussell Trust through your love of sewing!
