Sit and Sew Social

Sit and Sew Social

5.00

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.

*IF YOU ARE MACHINE SEWING YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE. *

Classic and well known designs.

Martin Winkler

A great range of tramme kits (pronounced trammay).

Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched, lines of wool yarn, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch (or tent stitch) with the yarns included.

This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of it's hard wearing properties.

There are lots more kits availalbe in the range. Click here to view the full Martin Winkler catalogue in a new tab

if there is anything you see that takes your fancy, get in touch and we can order it in for you.

Elizabeth Bradley
