First night!

Well the first workshop for 2012 went really well. Apart from an almost false start with dropped sewing machine and a cut knee. One plaster later, a tweaking of cogs and 11 crafters and myself filled St Peters hall with the whoosh of an iron, the snip of scissors and the Whirrggghhhh or maybe Grrrrrrrr of vintage sewing machines.

There was patchwork, appliqué, bags and cushions galore. One pupil whizzed up an appliqué cushion in 2 hours having never sewn before! A natural crafter and my sons teacher!. Others took their time coming up with their own versions of my designs to be completed next Wednesday. I can't wait to see the results.

The unique thing about the Creek Boutique sewing workshops is that the evening caters for every budget. Come along with your own fabrics and sewing kit and you just pay an entry fee of £4 + £2 for your pattern. Or you can buy the full kit for £9.95 + your entry fee. Creek Boutique is in residence with all your haberdashery needs including many fabrics.

I also cater for every skill level. If you can't sew, then I can give you an introductory lesson before you start your chosen project, with constant support throughout. If you can sew and have a machine then bring it along and brush up an old skill or just to get inspired.
A group of like minded people makes an inspiring and industrious creative atmosphere. I am having so much fun!
Next 2 nights are Wednesday 1st and the 8th of February.

Winter Workshop Dates.......

The next 3 Creek Boutique workshops will be taking place on the following Wednesdays...
25th January
1st February
8th February

We are loosely using Valentines Day as a theme, but instead of making something for your loved one it will be self indulgent! There will be patchwork, Appliqué, haberdashery, kits, hand sewing, machine tutorials for those who need it and much much more....

We will be at St Peters Hall in Coverack from 730pm until 10pm and the evening will be £4 per person. 
Kits and any haberdashery you may need are extra but you are welcome to bring your own sewing box and fabrics. You are also welcome to bring along your own sewing machine.
