We've been whispering about it for weeks, but we're now ready to lift the lid on what's behind #SecretSewcial. We are officially on the lookout for local quirky girls to share their love of all things homemade in a brand new group that will turn tradition on its head.

Something New
We haven't been the only ones to notice that options in Liverpool - to get together, combining a love of crafts with a tipple or two - are limited, so with this in mind our first 'make' is the fabulous Neighbourhood Sewcial. 
So, if you think this might be up your street, we would love to hear from you. Once a month, on Monday evenings, we will meet up at Neighbourhood Cafe, Woolton Road, Liverpool to share a cocktail and a chat, but most importantly, indulge in a range of our favourite crafts. 

You may be a cross-stitch queen or a knitting novice - we love you all. Each evening will feature a selection of activities to get stuck into as each member brings their own skills and passions to the group.

The Sewcialites The three of us got together, and inspired by our favourite magazines, bloggers and other groups that are just way too far away, we decided it was a case of "well lets just do this ourselves". This is us...
As co-founder of the renowned Liverpool creative company Strange Case Collective, Sophie is no stranger to the world of crafts. Her work has involved creating decorations for HRH Kate to styling national TV campaigns and she’s all set to share her skills.

Karen Charity worker and newlywed Karen discovered a love of craft when she was planning her wedding and sharing her adventures as a Rock My Wedding Real Bride. With a lot of enthusiasm and (admittedly) not much technique, she's all about learning new things. 

The Sewcial has it’s perfect suburban home in Lynne’s very own quirky and popular Neighbourhood Cafe, described as a cross between a Parisian bistro and an old friend's house. Lynne has a passion for finding and up-cycling unique decorative touches.
