Happy New Sewing Year

I hope you had a lovely Christmas - I thought, in this quieter time between Christmas and New Year I would tell you about a few of the exciting things coming up.

Firstly, I am really excited to tell you that Frances Tobin, creator of The Maker's Atelier will be coming to give a talk on Saturday 18th February.  Frances has written her first book, which is published on 9th February. Frances will be coming along to talk about this and how she started her inspirational brand.  

After the talk there will be an opportunity to purchase The Maker's Atelier Essential Collection and have it signed by Frances.  I will be running a series of workshops using patterns from the book and you will be able to see samples and have a chat about workshops.  There will be lots of tea and cake too.

For more details and how to book just click on one of the pictures


I have added a few NEW workshops to the website including two which will be run by Sam Larby.  In January Sam will be running a short course teaching how to Crochet - perfect for beginners or those wishing to refresh their skills. A Taste of Colour Design will take place in March - this workshop combines practical skills and theory and is the perfect way to kick start your knowledge and be inspired to redesign your wardrobe.  For details of everything that is NEW click on one of the pictures below.

In March the Knitting and Stitching Shows start and I will be off to Olympia to run workshops, to find more information about the shows and where I will be in March and April click here


On 24th March I will be running the popular Copy It, Make It workshop at a Creative Sewing Weekend at Dunford House which is near Midhurst..  

Get away for a weekend of sewing pleasure during which you learn new skills, meet new friends and enjoy a relaxing break away from it all.  These Creative Sewing weekends are great fun and a fabulous way to share sewing. The two-day workshops, are run by three expert tutors. The whole event is hosted by Wendy Gardiner and Jennie Rayment who are on-hand throughout the weekend to ensure everyone has a relaxing and trouble-free time.  For more information click below

There are still spaces on workshops in January and February - I will be working on Summer workshops this week so more news soon,

Happy New Year and Happy Sewing
