Classes and Demonstrations

Skill Levels explained

To help you find a class right for you, we have given each class a "skill" level as follows:  

Level All

Suitable for anyone; no knowledge or experience needed.

Level Intermediate

Suitable for someone with some knowledge. For patchwork this includes rotary cutting skills, 1/4" seam allowance mastered and able to use a sewing machine.

Level Advanced

Suitable for someone with good patchwork skills.

Patchwork & needlework does require time and patience. It is unlikely you will always finish the project during the class and you will be given all the necessary instructions to complete it at home (Open Format and Follow on classes are also available). 

Please do read the information given at the end of this page, paying particular attention to the terms and conditions: we will assume T&Cs have been read and agreed when you book on a class.

To book onto a course, please ring the shop or return the booking form. Unfortunately, it is not possible to book courses online.

Sewing machines & equipment

We kindly ask you to take your own equipment upstairs, so please make sure that you only bring items that you can carry to our 1st floor classroom. If your sewing machine is too heavy for you to take upstairs, we strongly recommend hiring one of ours (Janome, model M100 QDC) which costs just £5.00 per session. Cutting mat, rulers and cutters can be borrowed on a first come, first served basis.

Terms and Conditions

If you would like to book a place on a class:
  1. Either ring the shop or return the booking form with full payment.
  2. We cannot guarantee your space unless you pay for your place – bookings received without payment will be put on a waiting list and transferred to the actual list once paid for.
  3. Should you wish to cancel - providing you give us 7 days notice before the class, we will issue a CREDIT NOTE. It can be used against goods or classes and there is no time limit on it. However, if you do not give us 7 days notice, we will NOT BE ABLE to offer a credit note as we would have confirmed the tutor and committed to pay their fee. We will be happy for you to find someone to take your place, but we cannot take responsibility to find someone for you.
  4. Should WE cancel a class, a full refund will be given (via original payment method).

Please check the times of any classes that you have booked on the individual details, although most classes run 10:30 to 16:30, some don’t!

We will assume T&Cs have been read and agreed when you book on a class.

We hope to see you on a class soon, if there is a particular technique or pattern you would like to learn do drop us an email – and we will look at adding it to our programme.
