What's on http://www.nationalcraftanddesign.org.uk/whatson/


Worth keeping an eye on this one - several workshops eg. Pattern Cutting Trousers in the new year for £45 for all 4 weekly lessons on a Friday -
Also some of the workshops and exhibitions go on tour.

I see they have an event in Bath, which is not far from me, on 29th September. Not sewing related though. Will try and get to it but not sure if I can. Thank you Morgan.

There should be more places like this across the country. I've always found it frustrating that there is an assumption that leisure = sport and would  love to have somewhere to go and try different crafts or have access to equipment that perhaps I can't afford.  I suppose I was lucky in that there was greater availability when I was younger, than there is now, of local authority adult education and I tried pottery and silversmithing both of which I enjoyed immensely.
Life's too short for ironing.

Lincolnshire is definitely 'down south'  ;)

True Ss, but not too far!

As a Yorkshire lass, I think I'm on the north but to you I am a southerner.

What I should have said really was that its good to see something outside of London. 0_0
