Workshops

Our groups, classes and workshops have developed so well this year that we have very little time in the shop when we aren’t booked up BUT there are still one or two vacant spots so…..here are the details..

Classes and Groups

Jayne’s Sewing Circle has space for one or two more people.

This is an informal group where Jayne and the other ladies share their ideas and skills to help each other.

Tuesday 6pm-8pm £10/session

Ann Diggory’s class.

Ann can take on beginners or experienced quilters and lead them on to develop their patchwork and quilting skills.

Wednesday am 10.30-12.30 £10/session

Friday afternoon’s Sit n Sew is sometimes quiet and a good time to bring a project that you can work on with a little help or advice if necessary

Friday 1.30-3.30 £4/session

Workshops

Most of our workshops are held on Saturdays or Friday afternoons, simply because weekdays are occupied with classes and regular groups. Check out our forthcoming workshops and email me if you’d like to attend.

If you are interested in the Baltimore group then I would advise you to drop in on an appropriate Saturday afternoon to see the wonderful work that is being done and to talk to Eileen if you are keen to learn this amazing hand appliqué skill.
