By request Ive decided to start some Saturday sewing sessions which are suitable for beginners to fairly confident.  We will work on simple basic projects such as a wrap around apron, bags and a kimono.  You will need to provide the fabric, I provide the patterns, space, tea and biscuits and know-how.  If you would be interested in a regular Saturday sewing session please let me know and depending on demand I will set this up.

First Saturday of every month - block of 4.
