Craft away for a Pieceful Christmas!

Come and create reusable crackers to table mats, runners and walhangings, and decorations.  Combine a selection of patchwork and applique techniques, add some twiddling and fiddling for extra intrigue. Take away finished items plus an abundance of imaginative ideas. This is class for all abilities - it's a fact filled and festive fabulous workshop.

 

Dressmaking Masterclass -with Wendy Gardiner

Join me for a pot-pourri of dressmaking. Bring a new pattern or UFO garments you want help with. I will be on hand to provide expert advice and help you to make a toile, with fit tips and possibly make a garment (depends on garment of choice).

Beginners Guide to Machine Embroidery – with Lyn Quine

This is a machine embroidery class for the total beginner.  If you have an embroidery only machine, or a combi sewing/embroidery machine but have been reluctant to try the embroidery side – come and let Lyn explain all! She will cover everything you need to know to begin with confidence as well as providing lots of tips and techniques for troubleshooting. This covers winding a bobbin mid design, correct needles, stabilisers and different fabrics to stitch onto. You will learn to hoop, the floating technique and how to select a design from the machine, how to download, unzip and transfer a purchased design from a website to your machine and then how to combine designs. Lyn will also provide a small applique to make an ‘in the hoop’ item, finished in the hoop. You will need to bring a laptop, embroidery machine, hoops and manual.

The weekends will be held at the New Place Hotel, Shirrel Heath (near Wickham, Hampshire).  This fabulous listed hotel has a purpose built conference centre, excellent leisure suite and well equipped bedrooms with en-suite facilities. The hotel is fabulously decorated and will be the location of breakfast and dinner. Our workshops will be held in the well equipped, light and roomy conference rooms. And to relax, there is a large leisure suite with pool, Jacuzzi, gym etc etc – oh and there’s a nice bar!

 

The price for the weekend is just £425 per person which includes full-board plus evening entertainment and workshops on Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and Sunday.  We can also offer day rates for those not wishing to stay, and partner rates for those who wish to bring a partner.  Great news is that the weekends start at 2pm  Friday – with arrival and settle in, then an optional 2 hour class from 3.30-5.30. We finish at 4pm Sunday
