Continuing for 2020– Design your own workshop


This year I will continue to give you the chance to design your own workshop. By this I mean all that is needed is a topic you would like covered or a topic you have missed which we have covered in the past. Then so long as there is one or more others who would like to join you I will be happy to set up a workshop to cover the topic. Once friend are found who like the sound of the topic you wish to have covered, we then can go forward by choosing a date that suits all.

For most sessions I will use the usual 10-4pm hours and the cost will be £55.


I look forward to your further requests and ideas to add to those that have so far been put forward such as the overlocker, cutting fabric for patchwork, altering patterns, upcycling..
