Hi Everyone,

Its blog time again 🙂

Loads to blog about this week so let’s get started!

Its been a busy time in our Sewing Studio over the last past week. The Beginners Crochet Class was back as well as the Mother & Daughter Workshop…..this time making an envelope cushion. The  Textile Art workshop also made a return this month, making gorgeous lace bowls 🙂

APRIL WORKSHOPS

I’ve finally had chance to sit down with my diary and plan the workshops for April. There’s some workshops repeated but some fab new ones added…….Knickers, rag rugging and thread painting are just a few. These are booking up quickly so don’t miss out – More details here

I Made That – Campaign

Our campaign has been up and running for a few weeks now and its been a massive success.

This week my star of the week has to be Kim.

Let me tell you a bit about Kim. Kim has been one of our regular customers since she started knitting not so long ago ( since July 2015). Its amazing what she’s achieved in such a short space of time.  She works extremely hard and knitting has become part of relaxation time.

My favourite has to be the Lego brick….. however the scarf  comes a close 2nd.

The thing that stands out  to me about Kim’s makes has to be the use of colours. It’s extremely difficult the use different colours/shades together in one make successfully.

Kim has now decided to give crochet a whirl and took advantage of our crochet workshops……I’m pretty sure I’ll have some of Kim’s crocheted makes very soon.

This week I’ve been busy with a mix of course work and crochet. I’m finding my course work fascinating and so enjoyable BUT I have to have a break every now then…….keeps the creativity following …:)

So I’ve been having another go at crochet….
