We have been busy as always.Throughout March we have been to two Craft Fairs exhibiting our new craft range and currently we are preparing for our forthcoming courses and workshops that we will be rolling out in April.
On Thursday 9th 5.30-7.30pm we begin a six week machine sewing course at our favourite venue ,Hobby Craft in Harlow where those new to sewing can progress their skills and begin to make some really fun projects. When the six weeks comes to an end there will be the opportunity to sign up for the next course where we will be starting to make clothes. So anyone who enjoyed the sewing bee and wants to improve their sewing this could be for you.
Also on Saturday 11th again at Hobby Craft we have a workshop 1pm – 3pm Learning to make Pj bottoms. A really fun two hours making some comfy Pj trousers.
We are also holding the six-week beginners sewing course in Hoddesdon starting Saturday 18th April in the afternoon( we include tea and cake at this venue!)

Starting a new hobby or returning to something you did years ago can be scary……but also fun and sharing the experience with like-minded people gives a real buzz.Our classes are small to enable more tailored learning and the opportunity to learn at your own pace.
I have been sewing for many years and the thrill that you get when you learn something new or complete a project ( even if you have had to unpick the stitching several times to get it right) is rewarding.So if you have been thinking about starting something new come and join us you won’t be disappointed!
