Sew Saturday 2018: Sewing as Therapy

items made from Feedsacks fabric

"The theme at Calico Kate this year was 'Sewing as therapy'. Owner Kate shares the story behind it: 'The shop suffered a burst pipe in March 2018, with water damaging stock in four rooms. On top of that, I was also diagnosed with polymyalgia.' However, thoughout all this, Kate continued to find comfort in crafting for therapy and went on the host a successful Sew Saturday!"
