With our new bike trailer up and running (spotted at the Chorlton Arts Festival at Envirolution in Platt Fields) we wanted to celebrate and say a big thank you to all of you that helped make it happen by having a party!

At 5pm on Saturday the 2nd of July we’ll be having a celebration at our HQ in Chorlton.

The festivities will commence after our regular clothes swap (the swap runs 2-4pm, info here).

We’ll be celebrating with a BBQ and drinks at our HQ. Join us in making some pom poms and bunting (children welcome), which we’ll use to add a Stitched Up touch to our bike trailer’s parasol. We’ll also be holding the official naming ceremony of our fabulous bike trailer and giving out prizes for all those who got involved in the crowdfunder. For example those who donated over £20 will win a £5 voucher to spend at Stitched Up – this can be spent on workshops, clothes swaps, sewing machine hire or items from our reclaimed haberdashery.

A few essentials to make a note of: we will provide some fizz for toasts but please feel free to bring along a bottle of whatever you fancy, the BBQ will consist of veggie hot dogs but again bring any additional nibbles or treats for the barbie! Children are welcome, and we’re dog friendly too, if pooch is on a lead. The party will run till 7pm or until we’ve eaten and drank everything.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all you lovely lot and celebrating our going mobile. Lets hope the weather holds up!
