Your course tutor is Lynne Sargeson from The Daisy Lady Workshops

My overall aim with the courses set out below is to deliver hands on guidance and demonstrations throughout.  To adapt the tuition to suit all attendee's knowledge and experience to aid individual development of skills.  To deliver a relaxed and enjoyable few hours of creativity that we can all share together.

Sew & Social Sessions
The Sew & Social Sessions differ to the other courses offered in that they offer individuals to come along, yes to socialise with like minded people for a few enjoyable hours but also to gain knowledge and experience with new techniques being learnt.  The workshops will be hands on with facilitating and demonstrations as requested by the attendees on the day.  Join a family of creativity, to give and receive creative ideas and knowledge to each other.  Receive tuition on techniques that you can request at the beginning of the session.  Guidance given to you individually and as a group.
