New year : Get Organised!

I am super excited about my first BIG sewing machine workshop of 2014.  Even complete beginners can attend.

I ran a sewing machine workshop last year at Neath Food and Drink Festival where took two classes making vintage style aprons.  Following the success of this event I have been busy planning further machine workshops for 2014.

The first one is going to be held on Saturday 18th January 2014.  The class is a full day and will run from 10am until 4pm.  It is being held at the fab new fresh and modern community building at Victoria Gardens, Neath.

I wanted to start the year on the right foot and I am hoping to be better organised this year.  That's where the idea came from for this workshop - New Year : Get Organised.

This is what we are going to be making:

And this is a sample of it when filled:


NOW, the really exciting part of this workshop is that you are going to be able to tailor your gorgeous fabric organiser to what you would like to use it for.  Not only that but you will have a very large choice of colours to choose from too.

The sample I have made has been hand embroidered saying "Emma's Sewing Room", but you my choose to make one for the kitchen with pockets for recipes, to do lists, baking tools etc.  Another good one could be for a child's bedroom with space to keep special toys nice and safe.

The background fabric will be a thick cream cotton from John Lewis so it is of high quality.  The rest is up to you.  You can choose as many different colours as you fancy for the pockets.

You will be able to choose from a selection of gorgeous ribbons, lace and button to decorate your organiser.

I can only take 6 people on this class as it is going to be a busy day and I want to be able to dedicate as much of my time to everyone as possible to make sure that all 6 people take a fully completed project home.

The class is suitable for beginners right through to those who are competent at sewing.  We will be hand embroidering, but if you don't fancy that I can teach you applique instead.  The rest of the work is done by machine.  There will be 3 machines and there will be two people to a machine.

You do not have to bring anything to this class.  Everything you need is included in the price.

HOW MUCH does it cost?  It is at a BARGAIN price of just £65.  Not only does it include all of the above but it also includes a lunch bag from Tres Bien (which has sandwiches, Real crisps, bottled water and fruit).  There will be unlimited refreshments - tea, coffee and water throughout the day plus lots of sweet treats.


ALSO included in this amazing price of just £65 is a sewing goodie bag to take home with you.

Each person who books this sewing workshop will get the following:

A mini roll of felt.

A mini roll of fabrics.

A pin wheel.

A selection of brooch bags, bells and split rings.

A selection of gorgeous buttons.


Some pre made bows.

Some gorgeous ribbon.

And also included in the FREE sewing goodie bag when you book this class will be a pack of needles, a tape measure and some thread.

You will not find this sewing workshop at this fantastic price again so its not one to be missed.
