All workshops are listed here with dates for 2021 booking
Finally we are allowed to meet face-to-face once again and I for one am so excited to be adding new dates to the calendar! I am also excited to be adding some new workshops to the list which includes Box Cushions Workshop (piped and non-piped) and a new Improvers 6-week Course to follow on from the Beginners’ Course.
So have a look through and get in touch to sort out dates and times especially if the dates shown don’t fit with your schedule. A chat over the phone is the most useful way of learning what you are after and sorting out a time to suit!

What Is Provided At Each Workshop
What You Need To Bring
Some fabric for your cushion and piping. And thread to match your fabric.
Some fabric for your curtain sample and roman blind sample.
Beginners Course – you will discuss fabric and thread requirements once on the course. I can recommend local places to get fabric from.
With Covid-19, you will need to wear a well-fitting face mask and bring your own refreshments in a flask or water-bottle. Also your own packed lunch if coming for the day.
Sewing Tool Kit
Sewing Machines I Use
I rent Janome 230DC Digital Sewing Machines for use in the workshops, simply because I was sold a similar Janome machine whilst on my soft furnishings course and liked it. They are simple to use, simple to thread and positively purr along. If you are interested in buying your own sewing machine, the local agent for Janome (and other makes) is in Leamington Spa where you can ask for a demonstration.

I have implemented various safety precautions in view of Covid-19 in order to make my workshops be as safe as possible for all of us.
