Saturday 4th of September 10-5pm at Swadlincote Town Hall DE11 0AH
Have you ever been in a hall where everyone is there for the same reason?
Totally immerse yourself in this craft day retreat in our gorgeous town and let’s just craft all day long!
Our aim is to bring some fabulous crafters together for a super relaxing, creative and social day. Bring projects you need help with or that bag of UFOs (Unfinished objects!) because there will be a tutor on hand to help you when you get stuck. Whether it’s knitting, crochet or sewing let’s get together (sewers bring along your sewing machines).
Craft workshop Day which includes afternoon tea, on ordering please place a note on the order confirming if you vegetarian so we can accommodate!
The day will consist of workshops in Beginners knitting, Beginners crochet and a sewing workshop.
Please see the details below of the workshops.
Hello My name is Ami and I am a quilter and textiles artist. I am also the founder of Simply Needlecraft Haberdashery & Sewing Studio.
Ever since I took up sewing in 2010, it has been a dream of mine to run a shop. Simply Needlecraft was set up in 2012 originally online but finally found bricks and mortar outlet in 2013. I had originally set up as a haberdashery store but found my passion when I started teaching. With the help of my friends and family, we converted the upstairs of the shop into a beautiful sewing studio. That’s when the workshops began.
In 2014 I became a sewing tutor for adults and children and have had the privilege to teach in the shop but also up and down the country – teaching at the largest knitting and stitching The Festival of Quilts Shows in the UK.
You’ll be learning how to make a fabric memory journal, using a low tech technique to transfer a design from paper to embroidery. Using patches of fabric, to create a page of a fabric journal. You’ll make a start on the page in the workshop and you’ll leave knowing all the techniques to carry on adding pages to your journal at home.
