Social Sew Along
Every Friday, starting at 27/03, from 2 pm until 4 pm on Instagram Live for as long as we are advised to stay indoors.
Available in Dutch, French, German and English
In hectic times like these and in the midst of caring for others, like kids, parents and grandparents, you shouldn't forget to schedule in some crucial self-care time.
In fact, this might actually be the perfect time to try out a new hobby, or to dust off an old one. In the past, you probably would have stopped by the sewing club, but for now, that’s not an option anymore. Turn that frown upside down though, because Fibre Mood is bringing sewing class to your living room!
Every week, for 5 weeks, we'll be making a Fibre Mood pattern on Fridays across the distance. Our Social Social Sew Along will be on Instagram, thanks to Instagram Live.
Your personal Social Sew Along assistant? That’s us! The Fibre Mood team!
Can’t make it for the scheduled Live session, or would you rather get started once the kids are in bed? You can still access the Social Sew Along videos on our website!

Made in striped jersey, there's no doubt that Afra should be besties with your jeans and your long plain skirts. However, feel free to let your imagination run wild. The things you can do with this item are nearly endless.
