what a difference a year makes!

This time last year we were stripping and scraping and ripping stuff out.

But yesterday we held a Finishing Techniques workshop at the shop with Janice Anderson.



The secrets of mattress stitch (from all angles) were revealed, how to choose the best decreases and increases and where to use them, and also the holy grail of picking up stitches.

There were a lot of "A-Ha" light bulb moments and everyone felt they had learnt techniques that would make their sewing up so much easier and their garments so much better!

We'll be running another Finishing Techniques workshop in the New Year.  Watch out for dates here on the website and in our newsletter.

We still have a few spaces available in our  two upcoming workshops...

Learn to Crochet on Sunday 25th November and Toe-Up Chunky Socks on Sunday 2nd December.

Call the shop (01333 312 042) or pop in to book your place ASAP!

toe up socks - a quick and cosy project!


And don't forget our shopping evening on Wednesday 14th November from 7:30pm at the shop!
