Warm Wishes from High Street Quilting

This year has taught us all so much.

We have experienced the hottest summer and the coldest winter.

We have felt the relief of freedom from Covid and the fear of extortionate energy prices.

It has been a rollercoaster of a year.

But, through it all – some things remain constant …..

The desire for peace,

The love of family and friends

The warmth of community






Our workshops have grown steadily throughout the year. Our regular monthly groups and weekly sewing sessions are thriving and we have interspersed these with some one-off workshops and short courses.

Hopefully, 2023 will see more stability (for all of us) and we have a few, new workshops planned that I hope will interest you.

Please take a look;

Get to know your machine.

Bring along your machine and play!

How many functions are there on your machine that you’ve never even noticed?

In a “no-stress” atmosphere we’ll set you up with lots of new skills.
