Summer Sewing at the Workshop…

Announcing new Children’s workshops at the Sewing Parlour for the summer Holidays….term time has ended and our regular weekly classes have finished, so I have decided to open the workshop all summer round. Classes for all age groups will be happening throughout the week, they are one off day classes you can book for your children ad hoc there is no need to commit to all of the classes. So as well as the usual dressmaking classes and beginners workshops for adults at the weekends and sewing surgeries during the week.) …We are set for a packed summer  …

For the 7-10 age group I will be running a day class every Monday and Tuesday, and for the 11-16 age group every Wednesday of the holiday. Each day starts and ends at 10am-4pm… except the last week (in which I think by then I will need some hibernation time). Each class costs £40. There are only 4 spaces per class. For some projects I will be able to supply fabric but depending on the choice of project your child makes there may be some cost for fabric and haberdashery etc. Each child is catered for individually depending on skill level and experience and of course their interests … I am able to do this because of the small class is size and have always worked this way … so I will chat with you about fabric budget etc before your child chooses their project on the day.

So here are the dates:

Little Stitcher’s (ages 7-10yrs)

Mondays:   3rd , 10th, 17th, 24th of August

Tuesdays: 28th July,  then 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th of August

Wednesday Sewing Club (ages 11-16yrs)

August 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th

Full payment will secure the space on your chosen days. (I will absolutely refund you this charge if I cancel the class for any reason. My refund policy is that if you cancel and are not able to attend for any reason then I will refund you if I am able to fill the space or you can offer the space to a friend. But no refund is available unless the space is filled. Unlikely in the children’s classes as the waiting lists are long.)

Just a note about DBS checks… (very necessary while working with children) My current one is out of date so I need to update it. I am in the process of doing this application so please bare with me while I get it all legal… If you require the certificate then I will be able to show you once it comes through.

It’s probably best to ring me to book as I take a bit of time to get back to you by email or facebook messenger and places may go quickly… I also now take Visa debit card payments over the phone (I have entered the modern day! … it makes life simpler)

Contact details are: 07545757592

Best wishes and a happy Summer Holidays to you all … Anna x
