Hey everyone !

It's the update you have all been waiting for...... and sadly it's not good news.
Over the last few weeks I have done a LOT of soul searching , calculator bashing , generally banging my head against a wall and begging insurers & venues.

Stitch Bridgend will not be able to offer face to face classes , or 1-2-1 sessions for the foreseeable future. 
Whilst some venues , shops and schools are re-opening now ,we can't yet. 

I have come to the realisation that I would rather be able to teach you guys properly , face to face , with your machines and fabrics than behind a shield mask  2 metres away. If you've ever attended one of my classes you will know that I like to demonstrate , guide and teach hands on , and at the moment it's just not possible to do this safely. Stitch Bridgend classes have always been a friendly and social way to learn to sew , and I fear this won't happen if our numbers are limited to just  4 people at a time , metres away from each other.
Our venues also have extra provisions they need to meet , this results in costly price rises all round which would mean class prices in some courses would almost double , at a time I am sure most students are starting to feel the pinch.
Stitch Bridgend is a not for profit enterprise , so sadly we are not able to claim any of the Covid Grants or loans.

This isn't goodbye... just simply a be right back. Hopefully by the new year things will have settled into some kind of normality and we can start sewing together again , so keep an eye on the website , newsletters and social media for updates .


I will be moving over to the original GEMMA STITCH  page on Facebook & Instagram for the next few months as I am preparing lot's of new Christmas sewing pattern downloads , 2020 moonflower elves , DIY tutorials/blogs , sewing kits , stitch boxes ,  recipes & general craft messiness.

The Stitch Bridgend website will be open as normal for stitch boxes , sewing patterns downloads , sewing kits , embroidery boxes and more.

Thank you all for your continued support and words of kindness . 

Stay Safe , 
BE RIGHT BACK ,
