SEW A CELEBRATION SAMPLER

Sew, Socialise & Have Fun

Have you ever wanted to create a personal & modern sampler of your own design to commemorate an event, a place or an occasion?

You can sew one using your own motifs designed on graph paper or ones from design books.

You will also learn everything you need to know about the history of samplers and how to create your own using a variety of stitches, beads and charms.

Fabric & hoop will be provided but you will need to bring threads -details on booking.

Why not finish it during one of our Thursday or Sunday afternoon sessions in Petham Village hall (near Canterbury) from 2-4pm.

Please ring or email before coming along for the first time to check we are not on holiday.

£4 per session (pay as you go) – homemade cake and coffee/tea.

Email us too if you would like to be advised of forthcoming workshops.

This ‘term’ ends on July 28th and we start again on September 1st 2011.
