New Sewing classes and Workshops at Calon Yarns!
Drop us a line if you have a problem and we can let you know when the next surgery is.
Are you stuck?…..Do you have a sewing project that you need a little help with?
Maybe you have a garment that needs altering or re-fitting or maybe you would like a hand with your hems…..you might even have a project that you would love to start, but need a little advice first…..
Why not come along to our drop in Sewing Surgery where our wonderfully talented tutor Sinfi will apply a cold compress to your brow and issue her prognosis! These ‘quick fix consultations’ are £5 and you will be given a plan to be able to finish that project that has been stuck in the bottom of the sewing basket for many months.
If you would prefer a longer one-2-one tutor session and would like to work through the project at the surgery, then why not book a table so you can have help on hand. These longer sessions range from £25 to £50 depending on the help needed.
So get in touch to let us know you’ll be popping along for some TLC…….with plenty of Tea!
