A little Spoolette history and the Yorkshire Spoolettes first year…..
In the Summer of 2013 Clare from Sew Dixie Lou, Nicole from Nicole Needles, Sally from Charity Shop Chic & Amy from Sew Amy Sew created The Spoolettes.
The idea is for like minded sewers to get together, talk sewing, shopping, eating and drinking and generally having a great time.
I’d not seen any meet ups near me so I decided to have one in Dewsbury which isn’t too far away and has some great fabric shops. I posted it on my blog and before I knew had 15 Yorkshire Spoolettes gathered together on 8th April. I also got in touch with Clare, a founder Spoolette, and asked if we could join her gang!!
Above is a map of Dewsbury – this helped those who weren’t familiar with the area to find the meeting point and get their bearings. If you’d like a PDF to download click HERE if you ever fancy having a ride to Dewsbury to check out the shops. Market Days are Wednesday and Saturdays. I wouldn’t recommend going on any other day as it will be a bit ghost town ish.
Here is most of us after a day of shopping and before we hit Weatherspoons for much needed refreshments!
