    Saturday 23rd December

    10am-12pm  £10

    By popular demand, these fun sessions cater to the younger people interested in some stitching (and a little craft). We'll try out some new stitches, and put them into practice with a range of Christmas-themed projects with some sparkly bits thrown in!


    Age range? I will hazard around 8 - 12, but you know your child, their dexterity and their ability to concentrate over an hour and a half. An adult will need to remain with children under 16 years to 'help'.


    Each session  £10 to include all materials. Adults free (£2 towards materials, for those who can't resist the temptation of joining in!). Places limited. early booking advised.
