Bagladybird at Slowdown Sunday

slowdown-sunday-2

I hope I’m not too late telling you about this, but I’m taking part in the Slowdown Sunday part of the Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival this Sunday 14th May.

For full details and a run down of everything that’s happening on the Sunday read the Doncopolitan Blog about it here.

I will be in the Corn Exchange in Doncaster Market from 11am – 4pm hosting a free Bagladybird – Learn to Sew Kid’s Aprons Workshop. You can learn to make a kids version of the fab cross back japanese style aprons pictured below with food themed fabric supplied by SewCute Fabrics on Doncaster Market.

The adult aprons pictured below will be given away as prizes on the day, so even if you don’t want to sew on Sunday, come along to be in with a chance of winning.

Join the fun, eat the food, listen to the music and slow it right down and take it easy.
