June Make Like a Boss with Tilly Walnes of Tilly and the Buttons!

The next event in our Make Like a Boss networking series for creative small businesses will take place at our West Hampstead Shop on 21 June! This month we’re excited to chat with Tilly Walnes from Tilly and the Buttons about her journey from learning to sew to international sewing pattern brand in just a few years. Our Q&A will be followed by time to hang out and chat, learn, share, moan and come away with some new contacts and ideas for your business. Drinks and snacks will be provided! Book your place here and read on for more info.

Make Like a Boss with Tilly Walnes

Tilly designs award-winning sewing patterns that are sold in shops around the world, including Liberty of London and John Lewis. She is the author of the Sunday Times bestseller Love at First Stitch, was a contestant in BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee and was named ‘Favourite Sewing Personality’ in the British Sewing Awards the last two years in a row. We’ll be talking to Tilly about turning her sewing blog into a full-time job, how to expand from a one-woman business into a team, writing a book (she has another one on the way!) and more.
