Getting organised - Groups and classes for early 2016

Hi there everyone !

How is your day going?  I'm hoping you're having a cracker of a day like me! 
I'm feeling very productive today, I have been planning the classes and crafty groups that I'm going to offer here at my studio/shop, and it is quite exciting thinking about all the good things that could happen. 

I am also nearly finished with a big blanket that I am making for a lovely customer, so that is making me happy too.  It's always nice when the end is in sight!  I'll show you that one when it is totally finished, I think it deserves a tadah post all of it's own! 

So here is the list of crafty groups and classes and workshops that I have come up with so far.  Hopefully there is a time that will suit most people, it is hards to cater for everyone, but I am trying to have some day things and a night thing too for people who work. 

Classes and social stitch groups for 2016

    enjoy your classes, xxxxx Ale

  2. If I lived closer, the UK is a tad too far for me to come from, I'd be there like a shot. You are such a crochet designer inspiration. Live your blog x

  3. Hi, Julie! Thanks for the list of classes and groups for this year! I love stitching. It's my favorite pastime, though I've so little time for this. As far as I can see, the classes are not very expensive, so I could afford some of them. Thanks again.
