Go Crackers at Christmas


Saturday 2nd December, 10 - 4pm. £50

'Go Crackers at Christmas!'

Enhance your festive table with this fun day course aimed at all abilities - beginner to advanced sewists, and basic to posh sewing machines! We will be making cracker placemats using patchwork/quilting techniques and finishes, with Bridget (course tutor) demonstrating the 'bits' you fancy doing for your individual crackers. As with all of our sewing courses, full instructions will be provided in a colourful folder for you to keep.

Course requirements: 3 x half metre Christmas fabrics (I used the same pattern in green, red and cream); thread - including gold colour to topstitch; sewing machine; cutting mat and rotary cutter (if you have them); narrow ribbon to trim; basic sewing equipment.
This will make 4+ crackers

Tutor will provide wadding for mats; mince pies and mulled wine!

The workshop is with Bridget Goodhead. Bridget is a retired teacher. For many years she taught Design Technology and for 15 years, also taught nightschool, where the ladies did a variety of needlecrafts from dressmaking to machine knitting, embroidery and macrame (to name a few!)
