  1. Dear Friend,

    I hope that this finds you well?

    Isn't this a wonderful time of the year? I just love autumn, the changing leaves and the colours.... oh.... they're just so beautiful! I can start to think about getting my boots out of the cupboard and wearing thicker jumpers (I can feel the change of temperature in my studio now). I have always associated this season with learning, I guess it harks back to my school days, a new academic year meant a new pencil case, freshly sharpened pencils and art supplies. I've never quite shaken the feeling autumn brings for new stationery! 

    With this in mind I've re-written all my workshop descriptions and uploaded new photographs of them. There is a full list on my workshop page here. I've got a good selection of both machine and hand sewing classes, 1 and 2 day workhops, Christmas themed projects and paper related workshops, both bookbinding and journal/sketchbook keeping. Levels are suitable for beginners and more experienced makers. I've hopefully got something for everyone so please take a look and do let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you. 

    Until then, happy sewing
