Party dresses at the ready!

the New Craft House Winter Party is back!

We know we’re not supposed to mention Christmas yet (although, um…it really is only 10 Fridays away), so instead we’re going to shout from the rooftops about the super exciting Winter Party that’s returning on the 9th December.

Organised by the lovely team at The New Craft House in East London, the Winter Party promises lots of dancing, drinks, nibbles as well as a mini-market featuring fabric from Fabric Godmother and independent sewing pattern companies, including The Avid Seamstress.

You can find us showcasing our range of patterns, plus our brand new limited edition Christmas fabric kits, which will be on sale for a special party price on the night. Each kit contains 3 metres of stunning metallic linen (4 colours to choose from), a zipper & cotton plus a copy of our popular Raglan sewing pattern – everything you need to make yourself a gorgeous Christmas dress or as an amazing gift for someone special in your life.

We’ll also be on hand to answer any questions you have about our patterns from fit to best fabric choice for each style.


You can book your tickets and find out more by clicking here and receive 20% off the ticket price by using AVIDSEAMSTRESS code on checkout.

Your ticket includes

– Drink on arrival
– Ticket for a very special raffle with lots of sewing goodies up for grabs
– Goodie bag for the first 30 people through the door stuffed full of sewing swag

Dress code

Your best handmade (ideally) Winter party outfit. You’ll have the option to enter the Best Handmade Outfit competition on the night – judges to be announced soon! Non-handmade outfits are also allowed ;)

Timings and location

Doors open at 6pm and will finish at 11:30pm. Remember, the first 30 people through the door get a goodie bag so arrive early! The party is being held at Wusi Creative Space, 4 Broadway Market Mews, London, E8 4TS.

The New Craft House team are offering a prize for the best handmade dress, and you bet, the Avid Seamstress team will be thinking up of some show-stopping outfits to sashay in on the dance floor.  So, as a bit of extra fun, we’ve decided that if you wear a party version of any our patterns you’ll receive 20% off our sewing patterns on the night. We can’t wait to see what you wear!

We’re literally counting the days until some sparkly sewing fun and we hope to see you there!
