Workshops


‏About our Workshops

All the sewing ones do require you to bring your sewing machine though we do have a couple here that you may use.

As our workshops provided by fabulous tutors are growing increasingly popular and because we only take a max of 6 or 7 on each workshop for a cosy, informal feel they do tend to fill up rather quickly – if there is one that you are interested in which is full please drop me a line – I can put you on a list should there be a last minute cancellation or if there are a few interested we may be able to squeeze in an extra workshop or tell you first when we get new dates.

We can arrange bespoke workshops or Crafternoons just for you, crafty hen parties are popular as are our Eventful Evenings so please get intouch to discuss further.

We also can do payment by instalments at no extra charge.
