Autumn Classes - boy have we got a lot on!

In case you haven't heard already (and you must have done unless you've been in outer Mongolia you know - we've been shouting loud enough!) we've been super busy getting our new Shop & Studio spaces ready for our launch in September - and seeing as we've now got all this lovely room we thought we ought to fill it with not just fabric and habby but, well you know, workshops and classes and the like.


So this is what we have on offer this Autumn - if your new-term's-resolution is to get out there and get sewing then here's your chance. Spaces are all limited to 6 so don't delay booking.  Once it's full, it's full!

But, the little minxes we are, you'll just have to wait (he he!) We're so excited about our lovely new space and what we can do with it. Can't wait to fling the doors open wide to you all - I'm sure you'll love it as much as we do.
