This and that!

The summer is nearly over and the kids are back at school. Now is the time to think of doing a class or two. The Sewing Studio offers a variety of classes to suit all.  With Christmas on the horizon why not sign up for a workshop making Christmas items.

Mary Bradley is offering a workshop on a Christmas wall hanging or a Celtic cushion. This is on the 2nd October from 10 – 1 and is £11 per person. It will be great fun and focuses on a stained glass effect using narrow bias binding. The finished results are amazing!

Or there is a Christmas Workshop on the 4th October from 10-4 costing £15 per person. In this workshop you can make an Advent Calendar or a Christmas Stocking. Or perhaps a table runner with matching table mats, napkins and napkin rings. There will be Christmas fabrics available in the shop including Christmas panels. There are samples to view in the shop!

And here is a sneak preview of some fabric just in from Moda called Avant Garden. It isn’t on the website yet but it will be soon. I thought it was quite delicious and this piece especially was reminiscent of the work of Clarice Cliffe.
