Ah, the end of the first half term of this school year is here! It doesn’t seem two minutes since it was “back to school” time in September, yet here we are almost knocking on November’s door!!

We’ve got lots of fun planned in October half term, but spaces are filling up quickly – at time of writing our Spooky School only has one place left! We’re not just running activities for children either – Carol has a Needle Felted Owl / Hare workshop on Tuesday and is making Wet Felted Pumpkins on Saturday – and don’t forget our Spooky Party for Big Kids on Thursday evening!!

The Sewing Studio has seen an awful lot of action this week – as well as Sew Saturday, we had the final session of our five-week beginner’s pattern cutting course, some 1-to-1 overlocker tuition, and not one but TWO brand new sewing workshops – on Tuesday it was Mastering Zips where three lovely ladies learned how to insert three different types of zip, and on Thursday four learners mixed origami and sewing to create some beautiful Reversible Bento Bags!

Finally, it’s Bakewell Wool Gathering this weekend – we’re so excited to be going (though there’s always so many pretty things on offer, I’m not sure our bank balances will be quite so happy afterwards!!!). If you’re going along too, then do come and see us – we’ll be making sheep magnets with Jumping Clay!
