Event Details



BrisStyle and Martina Latimer are teaming up to bring you our Runaway Bag Workshop!


You don’t need a sewing machine to sew!

“Be ready to run away at a moment’s notice with this handy little bag. Toss in your
knitting, a change of underwear and a toothbrush. Cinch the ties to your belt or to the
end of a stick. Make one for a friend, so you can run away together.” - Ellen Mason,
pattern designer

This hand sewing workshop is perfect for you if you love the idea of sewing your own
things but don’t feel quite ready to invest in a sewing machine.
During this sewcial workshop Martina will show you how to read the pattern, teach
you basic hand sewing stitches and guide you through the project.

You will get a piece of cloth to practice a running stitch, back stitch and a ladder stitch
before you move on to sew the Runaway Bag.

Martina will provide all tools needed. You will receive the original pattern and she will
bring a gorgeous fabric collection of leading contemporary fabric designers such as
Cotton + Steel or Carolyn Friedlander.

You will as well receive a one off discount
coupon for the online fabric shop The Next Stitch.

Come alone or bring a friend and sew this lovely and useful Runaway Bag in a
relaxing environment.
