Sewing Workshops Are Shaping Up!

**Update** Unfortunately events conspired against us as we weren’t able to move in to the space as we’d hoped in September but I’m really please to say that after a lots of hard work behind the scenes things are back on track and we are hoping to announce a class timetable for Spring 2015!

I did say last week that things have been a tad hectic at Plush Towers, one of the things keeping me very busy is the planning and organising for the upcoming sewing workshops which we are looking to start in September. I’ve been very busy behind the scenes choosing furniture, sewing machines, meeting up with class teachers and all sort so other bits and pieces.

We are taking the office space above the warehouse which is currently occupied by our landlord. It’s so bright and airy and we’ll have oodles of space to play with. I’m hoping that as well as the area for the sewing machines we’ll have big cutting tables which will be perfect for big projects like curtains and quilts and if I get my way we’ll also have a sofa area to kick back and relax, socialise, drink tea and eat cake! I’m hoping that alongside the classes we’ll have drop in sessions and other more informal meets. We’ll also be hiring out the space for other local activities. I’ve already had interest from a local yoga group so if you’re near to Edenbridge and need a space for a club or activity then get in touch!

So far I’ve lined up lots of beginner classes as well as some quilting, dressmaking and pattern fitting and some children and teen classes. I hope we’ll have a final timetable drawn up within the next couple of weeks and you’ll be able to book in for a class but until we actually sign the contract I’m reluctant to put the classes up to be booked but here’s are a few to give you a flavour of what we’re planning…

Stay tuned for updates! As soon as we’ve signed the paperwork for the new space I’ll be publishing the timetable. I hope you’re as excited as we are and do get in touch if there are specific classes you’d like to see.
