Arrival from 10.15 am so that you can set up your sewing machine, if you decide to machine applique your patches. Bring your own sewing notions – scissors, thimble, unpicker and anything else that you like to use when sewing.
This is mainly a hand-stitching workshop, suitable for beginners. You may choose to either hand or machine applique your Flower Gardens to the backing fabric.
