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.

New from April stitching some Mondays depending on other classes please call to enquire !

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.
