Let’s get sewing – it’s almost … Christmas!

Many of you have said that you haven’t sewn for years and would like to get back into it – so I have added a Machine sewing refresher session to the list of classes. Perhaps you could sew new Christmas stockings for the family or even make a few gifts for friends.

Here’s a list of classes before Christmas but the dates aren’t set in stone so do let me know if you’d like to do a class on a different date.
