Saturday 17th October sees the launch of SEW Saturday, a campaign by Sew Magazine to encourage everyone to support their local quilt shop! We’ll have loads of kits and treats in store, including the unveiling of our new Liberty Tana Lawn collection but the icing on the cake will be Create and Craft star Mandy Shaw and her famous Christmas with Mandy workshop taking place upstairs on that very day.
For all those that know her, Christmas just isn’t the same with out Mandy. On this one day workshop you get to choose from a huge range of projects large and small from Mandy’s enormous collection of festive designs. Christmas with Mandy Shaw is workshop filled with festive fun and all the trimmings.
This year Mandy will focus on her new book, Christmas Wreaths and Garlands, which includes loads of gorgeous ideas for decorating your home over the holidays. Throughout the day you can make enough to decorate your whole house so you are all ready for Christmas and its not even the end of October!
Mandy will have her usual box of treats and trimmings and the shop will be full of tempting bits and pieces to include in your projects. The workshop includes some materials as well as all the patterns you will need to have a totally Homemade Christmas, Mandy-style. We will serve a home cooked lunch and there will mince pies and refreshments available all day too.
Christmas with Mandy Shaw will take place in our spacious workshop above our shop in Lewes, East Sussex. Its just 5 mins walk from Lewes train station and there’s plenty of parking nearby too. If you are coming a long way then let us know as we can recommend some cosy Bed and Breakfasts to make your stay as convenient as possible. Spaces on the class are limited so make sure you book in advance!
