A New Season of Sewing September 03 2016

As an ex primary teacher, this is the time of year when my mind goes to new classes, new timetables and new beginnings! I have just returned from holiday and I had a spring in my step walking into the shop today, full of those same exciting thoughts and eager to go!

The shop is looking fantastic and there are many samples of projects to have a go at this coming autumn. The autumn workshops are booking up quickly and there is an excitement in the air.

 

This season, Lizzy is offering a growing variety of skills and levels of ability within the workshops so that those who have attended before will see progression. As you can see in the picture above, there are classes in felt, quilting, free motion stitching, jewellery, clothing, soft furnishings, crochet and much more. So do have a look at the website or pop into the shop. Try something new, develop existing skills or just enjoy being part of our growing community.

I popped this Morris Blazer onto our mannequin today and already it is attracting lots of attention. There is a workshop coming up in October/November on Monday evenings aimed at intermediate sewers. This blazer is described as the go-to garment to complete any outfit and I would agree with that.

Another go-to outfit for intermediate sewers is the lovely Laurel Dress by Colette. I have made several of these as I love wearing tunics/dresses during the autumn/winter teamed with boots and this is perfect. Check out the pictures below and if you fancy having a go, then have a look online. The workshops run on either Tuesdays during the day or the weekend of Oct 22/23.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Happy sewing,

Sheila
