Attending SewBrum

The SewBrum meet-up starts at 10:00am in Birmingham City Centre, before moving to Guthrie & Ghani in Moseley Village in the afternoon.

Attendees can choose to visit Guthrie & Ghani, Barry’s Farics, Fancy Silk Store, and Birmingham Rag Market.



The SewBrum meet-up can get very busy (especially in Guthrie & Ghani) and there is quite a bit of travelling between locations, but attendees can take the meet-up at their own pace and drop-in and out as suits.

Barry’s Fabrics & Fancy Silk Store both have flat ground-floor access. Barry’s is a ground floor shop, and Fancy Silk Store has a (narrow) lift. Both stores contain a lot of stock, so the aisles can be narrow.

Guthrie & Ghani front door is accessed by two steps but a ramp is available and will be in place on the day. Attendees will need to be comfortable with stairs to access the studio space and the toilet.
