Social Sewing Group
Social sewing is the perfect opportunity to get some motivation and dedicate some time to those projects you’ve started. We provide easy to use sewing machines, over lockers, iron, ironing board and the all-important tea and coffee! All levels of sewing experience are welcome, but these sessions are not facilitated, so a basic level of experience is recommended. Bring your own projects and your usual sewing tools.
