Dear Customers

 

Firstly, let us all wish you a belated happy new year.  Welcome to the latest list of classes – at last!!  As a lot of you are aware it’s been a busy couple of months with shows and being short staffed in the shop.  However, hopefully there will be something to pique your interest and that it will have been worth the wait!   We will be adding more dates over the coming weeks so don’t forget to check back.

 

Both John Lockwood (of Hochanda fame) from Creative Expressions and Jane Gill are back again, as well as the regular parchment sessions with Marilyn. 

 

If it’s a die cutting class – please bring your machine along if you can.

 

Our regular sessions continue, with crochet the first Monday of the month and another group for beginners on the second Monday of the month.   If you are working on a project and are stuck, bring it along – or if you are a complete novice we can start with the basics.  Projects are not listed – we will discuss on the day what we are going to do next time.

 

We are still continuing with the knit and natter on the third Wednesday of the month and the Tuesday Club on the first Tuesday of the month.  The Tuesday Club proved popular so we will continue with the second session which will be the first Wednesday morning of each month.

 

With all classes please ring the day before to confirm that the class is running - sometimes the tutors are ill or the class has not filled up.  We are continuing with taking payment at the start of the class and your receipt will entitle you to a 10% discount on any goods purchased on the day of your class.  This discount excludes the cost of the class, magazines and already discounted items. 

 

Should you need to cancel a class you will not incur a charge if you cancel 7 days prior to the class.  If it is shorter notice than this then you will be charged half the price of the class if we are unable to fill the place.

 

We would continue to ask you all to please use the front door when you come for a class – it can be quite dangerous at the rear of the shop with racking and boxes and we would like to avoid any accidents!

 

If you do not currently receive the class list by email and would like to do so, please let us know and we can add you to the list.

 

Some local shows we are attending:        24 – 25 February    Farnborough

                                                            8 – 9 April             Ally Pally

                                                            8 July                     Newbury

                                                           

Hope to see you all soon

Jane and the Team
