Way of working

23 Feb

Over the last year or so I’ve appreciated that many people like to have a structure to their learning.  So recently this is what I have been trying to do with a number of useful and practical projects that guide through different techniques.  I have 2 Bernina machines and basic equipment that can be used to become confident.  I have some materials that can be purchased, books to look at and I hope lots of guidance to give.  I’m going to sort out images of recent achievements soon and post them here.


Classes at Buxton College

23 Feb

Last Autumn I was a little quieter with my classes but I’m now back with my morning and evening class in Buxton and a morning class in Leek.  We’re trying to set up a class in the evening at Buxton College now.  This is being organised by Buxton and Leek College like the Wednesday class in Leek.  Beginners and those with more knowledge are always welcome at all classes.  The main plan is to get more people sewing, to give support with this whether people have lost confidence or want to learn from the beginning.  Working with others helps us all to settle down to learning and stops us being distracted by everything else going on in life!
