Welcome to the first term of 2016 !
I hope you have all had a fantastic christmas and all your handmade gifts were received well :)
This Term we will be offering our usual classes along with some new ones including :
Dressmaking for beginners , Quilting Club & Tech 101 .
Our Children's sewing machines classes ( age 4+ ) have grown and grown and are now moving to Sunday's from the end of February in order to accommodate even more talented mini stitchers... stay tuned ! we may have a few superstars in the making .....
At the beginning of the year comes that dreaded task.... cleaning the sewing area ! Is it just me or do you find lot's and lot's of WIP ( Work in Progress ) ?
Back in November I started on renovating this stool by stripping it , spray painting and constructing an english paper pieced hexagon top..
My first project of 2016.... to finish it ! and here she is ...
I have to say.... I'm in love !
A little stitching , a little hot glue and some shiny new hinges and it's ready to fill with all my lovely EPP projects ! The whole lid is now a pin cushion which realllllly helps when you lose pin and needles the way I do !
I've already got my sights set on my next project ........ but alas ! To the classroom I must go ! ;)
See you in class soon !
