1 week left until Sewing Week!

Posted on in Creative News

 

It's not too late to get involved in this year's Sewing Week! After four successful years of Sew Saturday, Sew have now announced that the event will be turned into a week-long celebration from 30th September to the 5th October! This includes plans for Motivational Monday, Pattern Tuesday, Workshop Wednesday, Discount Thursday, Fat Quarter Friday and Sew Saturday, with each day offering unique gifts, ideas and techniques, as well as chances to be featured on the Sew social media pages!

A few more reasons to get involved in Sewing Week include:

  1. Get a full colour display advert throughout the promotional period, listed in Sew Magazine's regional directory. You'll be under a county header so local stitchers will know you're taking part.
  2. Sign up for as little as £45+VAT. However, if you wish to take part in the full promotional campaign, we can invoice in monthly, affordable payments, so no scary bills!
  3. Receive the downloadable Welcome Pack which includes daily projects, social media banners, selfie booth props, a week planner plus much more! You'll even receive a bonus project pack to keep customers busy from Motivational Monday through to Sew Saturday.
  4. At Sew Magazine we provide constant promotion around the event, from print to online, so not only will you be listed as a participating store on our interactive Google Map but your shop could also be included in an upcoming feature in Sew!
  5. By organising fun events in your shop, you'll inspire your community and show customers why they should be shopping locally! What's more, many of our store-owners have reported their best day's takings in previous years, meaning all your hard work will pay off too.

Previous Sew Saturdays have had over 200 shops taking part, a Sew magazine reach of 120,000 and a social media industry reach of 5,087,098. To sign up visit the Sew website today!
