Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!
I have finally put the new workshop dates on the website, take a look and contact me if you want to book.
I have added a Monday Social Timetable too, so you can come along for coffee and a chat whilst working on your own projects, this is instead of the Thursday Coffee and Quilting as the numbers became very few!

Happy stitching and look forward to hearing about your stitching adventures.

Well I hope it’s all going well in Birmingham the pictures on Facebook looked impressive.

Although I can’t do much at the moment I can use the computer and so have been working on the website and even set up a facebook page for chainstitchreaction! I have worked out my calendar and I have added a list of classes at CSR (chainstitchreaction) tab to the website too. Do take a look and let me know what you think and definitely contact me if you would like to book a space. Happy stitching everyone x

Birmingham sewing for pleasure

The new textile group Room6 will be exhibiting at the nec this weekend. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it as I have hurt my back at work. Just goes to show you never know what is around the corner! It’s knocked me for six and I can’t even spend much time sewing so I’ve missed out on our first exhibition together and I’m feeling rather sorry for myself. Hope it all goes well and the work is well received. Good luck everyone, have a good one x
