Sip & Sew £20
Jun 27 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Sip & Sew  £20

Join us at the shop for a Social sewing session!   These sessions are for  experienced sewers  who have previously attended one of our workshops.  Come along with your own sewing projects – machine or hand sewing – that perhaps you haven’t been motivated to finish at home alone.  Sew whilst chatting and enjoying a cuppa with like minded creatives.     You are welcome to use our sewing machines and all our workshop equipment  but you will need to bring along your own thread, pins and essentials sewing bits & bobs.  I  will be on hand to offer advice and assistance but I will not be teaching –  ultimately you will be tackling your own sewing project yourself.  (If you want to learn a new skill then you will have to book onto one of our workshops).    Space is limited in our little shop so sorry no dressmaking or large projects please, but you are welcome to bring them along as a show and tell!  If you have any further queries please email info@anniesattic.co.uk or give me a call at the shop.
