Find some info about this year’s event, plus keep an eye on the details for next year’s as they are revealed, at the Sew Sustainable Fair website.
The event is organised by Sarah Richards, owner of Olive Road London, a source for original vintage fabrics.

The Sew Sustainable Fair took place at the wonderful Craft Central building.

Missy Mop Fabrics
