Extra Workshop Dates!

Morning stitchers!

We’re very lucky to be able to add a couple of extra dates over the next two weeks to our workshop schedule!

We know you absolutely love our Beginners Crochet Workshop with Denise Quinn , and demand has far exceed our expectations for this course. Which means we are pleased to offer Friday 13th December from 10:30am to 1pm as an additional date on our calendar! The price is £25 and includes all of your materials and of course cake. We also have a Granny Squares Workshop with Denise, this Saturday 7th December from 2pm – 4.30pm. Everybody loves granny squares, and there are so many things you can make from granny squares – not just blankets! This workshop is also £25, and you will need to bring a 4mm crochet hook.

We also have some dates from Claire Muir our lovely Freehand Machine Embroidery tutor. Claire will be joining us for Freehand Machine Embriodery on Saturday 14th December from 10:30am to 1pm. This course will literally enable you to draw with stitch. You don’t need to be a budding artist for this workshop, and all of your materials will be provided. Although it does help if you bring your imagination with you!

As well as this, Claire is also holding a couple of festive workshops for us. The first is Decorated Crackers and Claire will be running this workshop on Tuesday 17th December from 10:30am to 1pm. I can certainly imagine these beautiful crackers on the table on Christmas Day.


The crackers are made using freehand machine embroidery, and Claire can tailor the workshop to suit beginners or those who have some machine embroidery experience.

Christmas Crackers

Beautiful aren’t they?

Following on from this, Claire will be here on Wednesday 18th December from 10:30am to 1pm for a Beautiful Baubles Workshop. 


You will be hand sewing and glueing various components together to create your baubles and then of course you will be adding the sequins, beads, glass paint and glitter. Your baubles will be glamorous and not gaudy. You should make two baubles on the workshop but the techniques learnt on the day mean there will be nothing to stop you making a tree full of baubles when you get home. Because of the techniques used, this workshop is suitable for beginners, including children aged 10 and over.


As well as looking beautiful on your own tree, these would make a lovely Christmas gift that can be used year after year, and give a personal touch to the tree of a loved one. All of Claire’s workshops cost £30 each, and include materials and cake.

All of these workshops can now be booked online, or alternatively you can call us on 0121 314 6888 or pop in to see us!

How are you Christmas preparations coming along?
