March is upon us and Spring is in the air! Why not make time to learn something new in our lovely spacious workshop area attached to our shop? We have classes and workshops to suit all abilities and interests.
Here's what we have planned for the next few weeks or browse all of our classes here. Plus, don’t forget about our weekly social 'Needles and Natter' session, every Thursday afternoon, between 2 and 4 o'clock. Everybody's welcome.
Do you have many unfinished 'Works In Progress'? Don't we all! Then take advantage of our UFO days on the first Friday of the month, to come and use our space to work uninterrupted. Details here.
