Field Grey Apron Kits for retail trade

The Field Grey Apron Kit: capturing your share of the home sewing market


Are you looking for the perfect sewing kit to add to your retail offering? We have the answer. Designed to be made up at home, Field Grey’s Apron Kit is a perfect fit for retailer’s customers who have been inspired by the profusion of television crafting shows.

Craft shows drive retail sales of sewing kits

It feels recently as though TV schedules are dominated by home-made craft shows. Spawned by the runaway success of GBBO; shows like The Great British Sewing Bee, Kirstie Allsopp’s craft franchise, and Craft It Yourself, to name a few, all reflect the growing interest in everything home-made. Sales of patterns for both sewing and knitting soared 60% in 2016 (according to Hobbycraft, the UK’s largest retailer of arts and crafts). During the same period sewing machine sales climbed nearly 30%.

The Craft and Hobby Trade Association calculates that more than a million people have taken up sewing in the last three years alone. Industry estimates that at least 7.7 million people across the country now count making their own clothes as a hobby. Demand for quality sewing kits is increasing all the time, and to meet this demand we have launched the Field Grey Apron Kit.



An easy-to-assemble apron for sewing at home

The new Field Grey Apron Kit includes all the ingredients your customers will need for a stylish and durable Teflon-coated cotton bib apron. As it’s beautifully presented in a branded clear plastic wallet, it can be marketed as a perfect gift.

Suitable for beginners and more experienced crafters alike, the kit includes easy-to-follow instructions. Each pack contains a full-size pattern, Teflon-coated duck cotton for the body of the apron, herringbone tape for the head strap and ties, and sewing thread. The only equipment needed to assemble the kit is a pair of good scissors, some pins, and a needle or sewing machine.

Smart and practical, the aprons come in three colour ways: Red with red herringbone head strap and ties; Charcoal with brown herringbone head strap and ties; and Olive with black herringbone head strap and ties.
