The Sewing Studio has also been busy this week and on Tuesday eveving  we had one of our bunting workshops.

Again we had a brilliant time 🙂


Everyone did really well.

Staying with the sewing studio – I’ve now released the dates for January’s workshops. Theres a few new features for next year including Block of the Month that will start in January and continue to December. You don’t need to come to every one, you can pick and choose.


And also textile art techniques will also be running once a month. Again you don’t need to come to every one, you can pick and choose.

January’s Textile Art Workshop is stitch and slash ….IMG_3225

But all of the dates are here and you can book online or in store.

Still sticking with The Sewing Studio and new for next year …Baby Showers.

In 3 hours you will have lots of fun, be creative, drink lots of tea and Mum to be will leave with her own handmade baby quilt, made by all her guests.

A truly memorable gift to treasure for life. Using basic patchwork techniques, guests will cut out a selection of square and rectangle shapes from our lovely variety of cotton prints suitable for both baby girls and boys. The cot size quilt will soon take shape with everyone sewing panels, cutting boarders and embellishing areas with embroidery, buttons and ribbon. The more experienced sewers will then quilt a design and sew it all together. All materials and equipment  are provided.
