10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Duration: 6 hours
This workshop is suitable for those with basic machine skills (able to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, sew a straight stitch).
**This workshop will be delivered virtually via the online video conferencing platform, Zoom. If you don’t already have a Zoom account, it is easy to set one up for free (basic package) via their website. On the day of the workshop I would email you the workshop joining instructions. Zoom allows 2 way communication between all participants and myself, allowing questions, feedback, demonstrations and conversation! It’s good fun and a great way to socialise with other people whilst sewing, during this period of lockdown.**

“I absolutely loved making my advent calendar and I proudly hang it up every December. The pockets allow you to fill it with anything you want – chocolate coins, sweets, messages, puzzle pieces. I will look forward to getting it out of the Xmas box each year. It’s a good project to learn some simple quilting techniques too. Having the 6 hours to complete the project will hopefully mean you will have plenty of time to enjoy the process and start feeling Christmassy!!! “
