Dearest All

It is with some sadness that I have made the difficult decision to cancel all further workshops for 2020 and I am not planning on running a programme in 2021 or for the foreseeable future.

Anyone who has made a payment for a workshop will, of course, receive a full refund and I will be in touch with you regarding this individually. Please bear with me, there are quite a lot to go through.

Recent events have given me an opportunity to reevaluate my goals and, like many other people, I have enjoyed spending more time with my family and it is something that I feel it is important to continue. It has been a very challenging period for children generally and I feel that mine deserve my undivided attention and support as we all work through it.

I will, in time, be looking into more on-line opportunities so watch this space. In due course, at least, we will be selling some of our equipment and materials so keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

The success of the business was very much a team effort and I can’t thank Jan enough for her help in making the days so enjoyable and run so smoothly. I would also like to thank Couling Sewing Machines for their support over the years, it was very much appreciated.

Finally, our wonderful tutors, whose creativity and expertise made for such wonderful days at the studio that we have all spent together.  And of course all of you, our wonderful Needle & Thread workshop attendees, for your support, for making each and every workshop so much fun, and sharing all your your enthusiasm and creativity with us.

We will miss you all so much and thank you again for your support.

Keep sewing and lots of love.
