Attending SewBrum

SewBrum 2023 will take place in Moseley, Birmingham, on Saturday 21 October.

In addition to Guthrie & Ghani, SewBrum will be taking over Moseley Exchange. Across the two venues, we’ll be hosting:

  • Social space to chat, get a drink and work on a hand sewing or knitting project;
  • A market space, with some amazing sewing businesses setting up stall for the day;
  • A handmade garments swap, where you can swap your handmade clothes which no longer fit for something new;
  • A sewing room, for a small number of attendees to sit and sew through the day.

Plus, the popular SewBrum charity raffle.


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.

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.
