They have began...

They have began...

Sewing workshops that is and what an amazing time I've had.

Workshops are something that I have thought about a lot in recent months but wasn't sure how to go about them and felt nervous because I have never taught in my life.

Adult Learners Week was approaching and thought what better way to celebrate a week of learning a new skill than Adult Learners Week???

They took a little preparation but it was worth it.

I had two dates booked.  One in Port Talbot Library and one in Pontardawe Library.  Both went down so incredibly well, a fun time was had by all, so much so that I have been persuaded to set up a regular workshop / sewing club in both these venues.

 One of the displays Port Talbot Library kindly set up for inspiration and borrowing.

And this is what we made...

Fat Free Cakes!

Don't they look amazing?  Some of these were created by people who were new to sewing.  I thought that was an amazing achievement.  I think it is a lovely thing that my workshops are project based so that each person who comes along gets to take home a lovely creation.

I teach in a friendly way.  No question is a silly question and people of all ages and abilities are more than welcome at my workshops.

The next workshop is Saturday 15th June 2013 at Port Talbot Library which is now fully booked already (woo hoo) and the next one after that is Wednesday 19th June 2013 at Pontardawe Library.  There are still some spaces left at this one.  If anyone would like to come, please email me on to reserve your place.  The next workshop is just £5 per person for up to a 2 hour session learning how to make a pretty brooch using gorgeous fabric and wool blend felt.

Everyone will get the opportunity to purchase sewing supplies and kits at the end of the session should they wish.

 I was at an event all day yesterday.  This was my table.

Lots are happening behind the scenes here at the moment.  There are going to be lots of changes.  I am having a bit of a re-brand.  I have a new vision for my little business which I hope is going to help me grow much bigger than what I presently am.  Keep your eyes peeled for news...
