Make a string of festive bunting with us on a Half Day workshop in the Crafty Sew & So Studio!

This is a brilliant class for beginners and beyond. 

You will start by cutting your bunting triangles from a selection of festive fabrics. You will sew them together, turn them through and create a set of bunting triangles with perfect points and neat finished edges. We'll then show you how to add binding to string them all together. 

Not feeling the Christmas vibe? You can choose alternative fabrics to make bunting for any occasion. 

As well as having lots of festive fun, you'll learn useful skills to enable you to make more bunting at home and for your next sewing projects. 

The workshop includes all your materials and teaching in a small group with an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly tutor. 

You have the choice to use our fantastic Janome and Brother workshop machines or bring your own machine. Please let us know in the comments at the checkout if you will bring your own.
