Christmas Markets Cancelled!! But there’s other ways to buy….

It might not need saying but our Christmas markets this year have all been cancelled.

We are Moving!! But still in Todmorden!!

Cheeky sew and sew are moving premises at the start of April to a workshop/studio space. We’ve loved our little shop but seeing as most of our sales are online nowadays, and we’re barely open to the public we think it’s time to move to a studio. This does mean a few changes: I will […]
