There are limited walking (even feed) feet available but are not large throat machines. But if you can, do bring your own, as it is always easier to work with a machine you are familiar with and not lose time learning to use a new machine.

Morning and afternoon tea are provided with each class. We supply a range of tea, herbal teas, coffee or chilled water and sweet biscuits. Unlimited for you to sew by.

Classes can change and new classes are added during this 6 month period. So check our Facebook page, website or sign up via website to receive our monthly emails.
