There are lots of ways to follow your hobby, regular stitching days and one off classes - don't see what you want - call me on 07920 760646:-

Stitching days - held Some Mondays, Tuesday evenings, Wednesdays, Wednesday evenings and Thursdays as well as some Saturdays. Expert guidance to help you finish those projects you have started or for uninterrupted, guilt free sewing with like minded people. No need to book regular sewing days weeks in advance just call Kath at least the day before the class you want to attend to check availabilty. Beginners welcome, suitable for all levels.

Day classes - one off classes, most are suitable for all levels, if this is not the case then I will say when it is more suitable for those with some patchwork skills. Day classes require basic sewing skills.

Embroidery group with Caroline - 11 - 3pm £15 if you have started a project with Caroline or have an embroidery project you want help with then this gives you the opportunity to work with an expert embroiderer to complete your work.

Bobbin lace classes with Caroline - 11 - 3pm £15 - learn to make your own bobbin lace under the expert tuition of Caroline, working in small groups and you can borrow equipment while you try it out.

Book club with Catherine - 2 - 4pm £5, working with Catherine an opportunity to complete books you have started at Catherine's classes.

For another year I have managed to keep costs the same for classes, however to do this I have had to make a couple of changes -

Please bring your own rotary cutter with you, mats and rulers will still be provided free of charge,

A charge will be made if you wish to use the passport, smart 160 or ambition 1.0 demo sewing machines - £5 per day workshop or £3 for half day or evening workshop. If you subsequently purchase a new machine from me these charges to a maximum of £50 will be refunded.

As much tea/coffee/biscuits as you want are provided free of charge but please remember a packed lunch.
