Local businesses M&G Designs and The Little Fabric Store are set to celebrate Sew Saturday, the climax of a campaign launched by leading publication Sew magazine.
The businesses are just two of the many stores around the UK that will be involved in the event on Saturday, October 17.
The two shops, based in Eastgate and New Street respectively, will be holding mini workshops, discounts, and more.
Despite being rival businesses, they will work in cooperation to make Sew Saturday a success, offering vouchers for each other’s shop when a purchase is made.
Gary Denniss of M&G Designs: “We’re very happy to be taking part.
“Stitching and dressmaking is really growing in popularity, and customers rely on their local fabric shop for more than just great fabric and supplies. It’s a place to get advice and feel part of the community too.”
“We are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new through the door, and hope our local stitchers will get involved.”
Helen Wilkinson of The Little Fabric Shop added: “Our shops stock different things, and my view is that if you can’t get it in my shop, I’d rather somebody got what they want in Louth rather than having to go online or out of town.”
