Its all about the workshops !

Hi everyone and Happy Easter x

This week has been full of fantastic creations that have been made here in our very own Sewing Studio.

So let me show you whats been going on….

First up – Our children’s Sewing Bee. The children range from 8yrs – 16yrs divided into three groups. It’s amazing how popular this has become and I’ve had to start a waiting list. They get to have a go at all aspects of sewing and here’s what they have been up to…

Our Crochet and Knitting runs every Saturday just pop me a message to book.

The three-part quilting workshop came to an end on Wednesday evening. I’m so proud of the ladies that took part. Over the three weeks they have learnt to use a rotary cutter safely, measure and cut blocks, piecing their quilt tops , basting, quilting and binding.

The end products are amazing….

Its seem the ladies have caught the quilting bug :)…

I began a quilting project myself this week …… I’m a huge fan of bargello quilts so I decided to have a go.  This was an experience to say the least, after blunting 3 rotary cutter blades, using over 300 metres of thread and some serious sewing time but I’m so pleased with it…..
