Corona Virus and Covid-19

In line with Government advice, we have suspended all workshops at the School for the forseeable future.

 Our online Shop remains open.  There is no minimum order and there is free UK P & P, so if you need any sewing supplies for your project, take a look.

All current bookings are now placed on ‘pause’. This means that when the current situation has run it’s course and the Government notifies us that we can resume normal activities, we will be in touch to re-arrange your workshop.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for news updates

Stay well and look after yourselves.

Very best wishes 

Nadine and the Team
