Free sewing workshop for cyclists

April 23rd, 2010 Posted in Events, General Stuff, Uncategorized

Saturday 15 May, 2pm – 5pm

Spoke + Spool are running a free afternoon sewing workshop for bike lovers near and far! Come along with some old clothing or fabric and make your own cycling clothes to wear when pedalling your bike.

The Spoke + Spool team will give gentle guidance to help you transform or amend your old clothing into new, bike-friendly, functional pieces. You can make anything from complete transformations to simply adding a map into your pocket or reflective cuff to your jeans. What better way to learn new skills, make cool gear and enjoy a relaxed, friendly and fun afternoon!

Sewing machines and equipment will be provided on the day. All levels of sewing expertise are welcome, but a love of cycling is a must.

Bookings – to book in to the workshop please email:
