Exciting News

Well everyone I have some really exciting news! Chain Stitch Reaction Workshops will be moving from Havant to Fareham! I am taking over Jolly Stitcher retail business at Fareham Enterprise Centre, Hackett Way just off Newgate Lane, PO14 1TH from Saturday 7 July 2018.

It’s been quite a whirlwind experience.
Jolly Stitcher sells fabric, wool and haberdashery: Les and Marilyn started the business from scratch and have created an Aladdin’s cave for stitchers. I have worked for Les and Marilyn for the past 3 years and absolutely love the place and of course if it had of shut down I would have missed all the lovely customers, students and friends I have met at my time there. I just couldn’t let that happen so I took the plunge and asked Les and Marilyn if they would let me take over the reigns. They said YES!
Les and Marilyn will be retiring and the doors will close on Saturday 16 June with their celebrations on the day.
I will reopen the shop on Saturday 7 July and hope you will come along to see whats happening!
Happy Days xxx
