Hello

 

I wish you all a very happy  and prosperous New Year !

 

It's been quite a while since I sent out a newsletter, last year went very quickly and the world of sewing and crafting is just becoming more and more popular.

 

The Sewing for Pleasure show at the NEC, 16th - 19th March 2017, will come round fast and if you haven't attended this show before it is well worth a visit. The choice of fabric stores just gets better each year!

 

Some of you already  know that I have a blog on my website which I have to say has been  updated sporadically, I am going to try this year to blog more often, watch this space.  If you have attended any of my groups, workshops or courses and you would like to share what you have made, please send me photos and I will  post the photos on my website.  I think this would be a fun thing to do.

 

I have now planned in my courses/workshops until the end of March which include the following:

 

  • Four day skirt workshop Mon/Tues 16th/17th Jan and Thus/Fri 16th/17th Feb.  This is a brilliant workshop if you want to develop your sewing skills and learn how to interline and control open weave fabric (think Chanel type fabrics).  There is one place left on this workshop.

  • I have two Overlocker course planned but they are both fully booked, let me know if you would like to book on an overlocker course and I will see about planning in a further date.

  • If you would like to sew with knitted fabric but feel you do not have the confidence then book on my Sewing with Knits course on Tuesday 28th February. You will be shown different types of knitted fabrics, fabrics suitable for lining knitted garments, what kind of seams to use and more.

  • For those of you who have Brothers' embroidery software 'PE Design 10' but not sure how to use it, then take a look at the course I am running on 23rd/24th February.  You will be shown how the software operates e.g.; how to print templates of, how to use the drawing tools, how to edit designs and much more.

  • A place has just become available on a Saturday Sewing Group, dates as follows 14th Jan, 4th Feb, 4th March, 10.00 to 15.00 - cost £120

 

 

Happy Sewing !

Maria
