New website: class listings & workshop hire

Welcome to our new website, thanks to Fi at Unavoided for putting this together.  Being real technophobs we would never have been able to do this ourselves!

The launch of the site makes life easier for our lovely customers, with all classes and workshops now listed on the home page with online booking, no more having to use Eventbrite, yeh!  So July/August is a bit of a funny time of year, with so many people on holiday we debated as to whether or not to run classes and of course our creative side won and we decided why the heck not.

We are about to have the last of our beginners classes, which is tomorrow evening.  You can still book in for this last one which covers interfacings/interlinnings.  Our next block starts next Tuesday (22nd), these classes will covering closings including zips and buttonholes, which still cause tantrums with us!  You can book in for the full three evenings or book in for individual classes, £32 for the 3 or £12 per night.

Check out our other classes which include learning how to create a stunning stained glass window patchwork piece and also our full day pattern workshop, learning how to take correct measurements and adjust patterns for the perfect fit – bring your own project along.

There are a few classes in the pipeline with dates just needing to be confirmed before we list these; these will include another brush pen calligraphy, lampshade making and needle felting, oh and we are taking names for beginners crochet.

Our workshsop space is also available for hire by any group or teacher/tutor looking for a venue for their own classes.  It can be hired with or without our sewing machines.  Even though its to the back of the shop, the space is still really bright and spacious, we have had 12 people in there for one of our previous classes!  Its perfect for any type of creative class.
