December Diary

Oops, very sorry, November came and went and the diary didn't get onto the website. I was volunteering at Killerton House to help put up the Christmas decorations and fitting in workshop preparation in between, so not much time for the computer stuff!

Anyway, here is the December Diary, and I will make sure that the January Diary is up before the end of this year.

This will be the last one of the year. Next years dates will be announced soon.

These workshops are now fully booked, but I will be repeating it in 2016. For those attending I will also be sharing a pattern for a stitched Christmas tree.

And that's it for this year. I'll be preparing next years workshops and developing new ideas during the rest of December and into early January.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a fabric filled New Year. XX
