Patterns from the Sewing Bee! Episode 6!

Email sent: May 28, 2020 7:09am

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Did you watch the sixth episode of the Great British Sewing Bee last night? This week was all about reducing, recycling and refashioning and we absolutely loved this episode. We are feeling totally inspired to refashion old or unloved pieces in our wardrobe!

We had a man’s bomber jacket, laundry bags turned into stylish, wearable garments, and old knitwear refashioned into made-to-measure jumper dresses. We noticed some of our patterns being used in the show, so we have pulled them all together plus some others inspired from the show for you below.

We have no fabrics to show you this week from the show as the episode was focusing on refashioning what you already have. We encourage you to dive into your wardrobe and see what old or unloved treasures you can find to transform into something new!

We are so excited to be stocking the gorgeous range of meetMILK fabrics. ⁠This is a brand of sustainable fabrics offering an alternative choice of materials for home sewers and makers who cherish high quality and eco-friendlyness when choosing fabric for a handmade wardrobe. ⁠

The fibres and materials, as well as the production environments for the fabrics chosen for the collections are all certified sustainable and/or eco-friendly with very low ecological impact.⁠ And they are some of the most beautiful fabrics we've ever felt.⁠

These fabrics will be arriving in stock soon and you can pre-order them all on our website now to be the first to get some. Explore this fabulous new range here.

We warmly thank you for all the lovely messages of support we've been receiving throughout these difficult times and we would also like to express our warmest appreciation and gratitude for Royal Mail and the courier staff for maintaining deliveries and enabling us to keep shipping and receiving deliveries.⁠

Thank you so much to everyone of our customers who has placed an order with us over the past few weeks. We currently have a 10 day delay in despatching orders but we are working extremely hard to deliver our parcels to you as quickly as possible and resume our usual speedy service, whilst also protecting the health of our team.⁠

We’re also experiencing some delivery delays as the Royal Mail themselves are under huge pressure due to an increase in volume, so please allow extra time for our parcels to reach you. We ask for your patience in these uncertain times.⁠

Our Customer Service team is receiving a huge volume of queries and to help us offer the best service we can, we ask you to contact us directly via email on sales@minervacrafts.com. We’re prioritising emails about orders, but our team are working really hard to reply to everyone within 72 hours. We politely ask you not to send multiple emails with the same inquiry as we are working through them in date order and this will move them to the back of the queue (as they will be grouped together with the most recent email).⁠

We know that for many of us, sewing and making provides an important lifeline and now, more than ever, we need to continue sharing positive craft experiences. ⁠

We stand ready to serve, and hope that our website and social channels can be a source of support, inspiration and joy at this difficult time. We hope you will find solace in your sewing and distraction from worrying thoughts. Stay safe and well.⁠

The Minerva Team.⁠
