Owl and Sewing Cat launches 'Sew a Little Secret', the new 'sew-at-home' project subscription service delivered straight to your door
Owl and Sewing Cat is reaching out to those who aren't able to pop into the shop, by offering a variety of subscription options for their unique pattern ideas that are lovingly packaged and delivered with ready cut fabrics, threads, ribbon, interfacing and more.
Tracey Dennis, the founder of Owl and Sewing Cat, says: "What most individual's desire is reliable inspiration for their next sewing project that will push their own sewing skills and creativity. We identified a gap in the market for simple to use quality sewing projects with inspirational patterns – this is how 'Sew a Little Secret' came about. Think of it as the 'Graze Box' or 'Netflix' for the sewing community."
Now, sewing enthusiasts from anywhere in the world can subscribe to receive a complete 'Sew a Little Secret' project each month. The patterns are produced on high quality paper rather than the thin tissue paper used in traditional patterns. However, the success seems to be the quality of fabrics and the patterns which are fully re-usable in full scale.
The subscriptions come with free UK P&P and beginners or those with intermediate sewing skills may choose from monthly subscriptions or the "Buy Now" option to try before signing up.
Similar to magazine and other product subscriptions, 'Sew a Little Secret' would make an ideal gift for anyone wanting to pursue their sewing ambitions.
Feedback so far has been very positive with subscribers saying they love the surprise element and the fact that it is exciting to receive something new to make in the post each month. Tracey, added: "They also say that it’s nice to have someone else select the fabric as it makes them use colours that they wouldn’t have originally chosen, and do projects that take them out of their usual comfort zone."
Subscribers can post photos and comments via Owl and Sewing Cat's Facebook page and Twitter with the hashtag #sewalittlesecret.
Now that the brand is increasing in popularity, Tracey and her team will be heading on the road in October to continue spreading the 'Sew a Little Secret' word, starting with the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in London.
