Hello and welcome to The Bristol Stitchery!

We are Leanne and Sofia, owners and founders of The Bristol Stitchery, which we set up in 2015 after many evenings and weekends sewing together. 

When we first got to talking about setting this up, Leanne fell pregnant with her baby boy and so the idea for maternity and baby sewing came up. Sofia also fell pregnant later in the year, and the shared frustrations of not finding the right maternity clothes, in the right fabrics, proved a turning point. We also realised that we could make awesome clothes for our little ones and wanted to share this with other mums-to-be too!

We will be looking to set up classes and workshops in the next few months with a focus on getting new mums and mums-to-be sewing simple items for their little ones. Watch this space, and sign up for our newsletter for updates! 

Love Sofia + Leanne x
