Latest News

The new Simplicity pattern catalogue is in, and it has some great new patterns. Patterns range from £3.95 to £7.95 and include great craft items as well as adults, childrens and baby clothes. The fancy dress section is to die for, just take a look at this Elizabethan dress! With bags, quilts, curtains and even tea cosies, there is something for everyone. If you are not sure how to work with a pattern, I can help either by going over it with you once it comes in, or you could book a workshop to learn how to cut out and sew your project.

Talking of workshops, I've booked some new sessions in June and July which you might like to join:

I have a Metal Embossing Workshop on Friday 11th June, from 10.30 to 12.30, when we will be learning the basic techniques and beginning work on a book cover. The cost for this workshop is £30.

My next Hardanger course starts on Wednesday 9th June, with further sessions on 23rd June and 7th July. These are held from 10.30am to 1.30pm and the course costs £100 for all three sessions.

I'm trying out a new workshop on Wednesday 28th July which will be held in my new workshop space. Join us to learn the basics of wet felting, incorporating various fibres with wool to create background fabric which can be used for other projects. The price of this workshop is £30. All materials are included in all of these workshops.

I'll not be around for the next couple of weeks, but Eileen will be here to look after everyone. I am contactable, and will be picking up my emails, and hopefully blogging occasionally.

See you soon,
