The Sewing Directory was founded in 2010 with the goal of making it easier for stitchers to find supplies.
The site has evolved since then to become 2 comprehensive directories: One of online sewing shops and online sewing classes, the other a local directory of sewing shops, classes and groups searachable by county.
There are hundreds of free sewing projects, technique guides and features. You can also find out about fabric sales, offers and discount codes, as well as getting the details of the large sewing and quilting shows in the UK.
What’s more we have an active social media community of over 130,000 sewing fans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Sign up to our mailing list to make sure you keep up to date with the latest news, offers and new content.
Fiona is the founder of The Sewing Directory. She came up with the concept for the site whilst on
maternity leave. She was building a website for her mum’s sewing business and couldn’t find
anywhere suitable to promote it. From there the concept of The Sewing Directory arose and 6
months later The Sewing Directory launched at the Sewing for Pleasure show in March 2010.
Fiona loves bag making, quilting and sewing things for the home. She’s a massive Tula Pink fan, loves woodland animal or nature themed fabrics and denim. She’s a fabric hoarder who is always on the look out for new storage solutions to allow her to fit more fabric in!
She is also the author of 2 craft business books with Search Press: Craft a Creative Business and
Making & Marketing a Successful Art & Crafts Business.
