Sit and sew Social mon 11th september


We understand that some projects need quite a bit of room to be able to sew - laying out a quilt in a box room is not easy at the best of times! Hence the introduction of our new 'Sit and Sew Social' sessions that run a couple of times a month. Come along with your own project, take advantage of the space that we have in our classroom and get on with completing it. These sessions are great way to meet like minded people, pick up tips and ideas, and to dedicate some 'me time' to yourself. Come along any time between 10.30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. Stay all day or just for a few hours - it really is that simple. We will provide you with tea and coffee but you will need to bring your own lunch.

£5 for the day plus your own materials.
