Workshops

These workshops are designed for those who are itching to make soft furnishings for their own homes but not sure where to start.
It's easy to watch a million online videos but theres nothing quite like being in a room with a group of fellow crafters and a teacher to guide you. In the curtain and blind making workshops we will be making a small sample sized curtain/blind so everyone completes their window treatment and fully understands the process and is successful in their sewing!
