Why not dust off your sewing machine and come along to a full day of trying out a range of sewing projects and gain help and advice from tutor Naomi Whan. Naomi has a range of machine sewing experience and been a regular sewing tutor for many years.

On the 16th August, you can pick from a range of projects to try out. The workshop is suitable for both beginners and more advanced sewers.
