I am so excited to announce that we will shortly be offering sewing classes at Fabric Godmother. *waves hands in the air in an excited manner*
The classes will be held in our wonderful room of fabulous fabric in Hove Sussex.
The first class will be a ‘Get to know your overlocker’ class taught by the overlocking guru Julia Hinks on the 24th October.
There are many more classes in the pipe line but if there is anything in particular you would like to see added then please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment in the comment section below this blog post with your ideas and suggestions.
