Its been a while since we have had the time to sit down and put something together about Blanket Stitch. We have been busy sewing to increase our available stock for this years Craft Fairs and our first Fair is this Saturday at Jubilee hall in Takeley.
We have been improving on our range of felt items and Lingerie bags and have many ideas for new stock additions that we will incorporate over the next few months. You can meet us at one of the events that we will be attending in Hertfordshire and see what we have to offer.Details of where we will be are on the website www.theblanketstitch.co.uk
We have also been very busy planning and delivering workshops and have been very excited with the response that we have had at our teaching side of the business, The Crafty Academy. It is always a gamble when starting a new business and after an expected slowish start we are staring to increase the number of Workshops that we have available and are about to offer 6 week courses to enable our customers to build on and develop their sewing skills.
During April we will be offering those that attend a workshop 10% of the cost when they bring a friend. So spread the word and come and join us, you won’t be disappointed.
At our “Making Friends with the sewing machine” workshop we have met some lovely people who have been surprised at how quickly they have learned how to sew and have gone home with finished projects and the motivation to return and complete another workshop and We have had 100% positive feedback so far!
Starting a new hobby can be daunting as well as exciting and at The Crafty Academy we offer support and encouragement and enable our customers to work at their own pace in a relaxed and friendly environment. We also offer support on the “Kit” you will need to develop your hobby at home and show you that you can start out not having to spend a fortune which is always good news!
We will also tailor workshops to our customer needs and love to discuss what people want to learn prior to planning our new sessions.
We are passionate about what we do and love to share this passion. I hope we have whetted your appetite? Complete the form on the website or give us a call lets see if we can make 2015 the year you learn a new skill or start a new hobby. We will be back soon to keep yo updated on our progress and the other craft workshops that we will be planning as the year progresses.
