The second workshop of the year was Learn to Sew – Aprons held at St Nicholas Church Hall in Bawtry.

We made vintage style frilled pinnies. Have a look at the photos below to see what we got up to.

Here is some wonderful feedback I received from one of the workshoppers after the event – “Fab workshop today… to say I’ve not looked at a sewing machine in 20 years, and the last thing I made was a little waist coat…. I’m pleased with my efforts. Big thanks xxx” – Maggs

The next workshop is Learn to Sew Skirts, on Saturday 2nd April 2016 at Austerfield Study Centre, DN10 6RG, 1-4.30pm.
