The Arts Tent

Barefoot Festival™ The Arts Tent

Crafty Sew&So are back to host the Arts Tent at Barefoot Festival™ for a another year and we're looking forward to it to being even more fun packed and full of crafty activities. Last year we moved into our fabulous Sewing emporium in St.Martins Square and now offer Workshops, Fabrics, Supplies, Gifts, ​Crafty kits, ​Craft parties and sew much more from the heart of Leicester city centre! We also offer a unique sew-by-the-hour sewing cafe experience, Crafty parties, 1 to 1 tuition and Sewing for Blokes.

The mission of Crafty Sew&So is to bring out the creativity in everyone we meet, whilst having fun and enjoying meeting like minded people. There are no silly questions and you are encouraged to try new crafts and build your confidence at your own pace.

We're delighted to be back for another year of arty fun and frollics crafting Barefoot style!

If you just can't wait to get your craft on come and see us in our sewing haven in St.Martins Square, Leicester for some pre-Barefoot creative inspiration.
