Sew Lovely is a modern sewing workshop and haberdashery in Barry, South Wales.
We're a family business (opened in summer 2014, originally in the seaside town of Penarth) and a sewing haven for those who want to make their own furnishing accessories and clothes.
We have everything you need for your sewing project: choose beautiful fabrics from suppliers such as Makower, Dashwood Studios, Fabric Freedom and Ashley Wilde. We also stock Singer sewing machines and overlockers, and offer sewing machine service and parts.
In 2015 we won Sew Magazine's Best Haberdashery in Wales award, voted for by readers!
Carol, our resident sewing tutor, is fascinated by the past as a subject for embroidery art pieces, though she likes to add a contemporary twist. She has recently completed a collection of stitched pictures based on sketches and photographs of Victorian and Edwardian Penarth. She is available as a tutor for all sorts of classes, aimed at both beginners and advanced sewists.
"I love sewing.
It's like therapy – a chance to get lost in creating, playing, and forgetting all about
the daily chaos.
The touch of the fabric, choosing colours and print
and seeing something new come into being. Pure joy."
