Free Friday Demos

Free Friday Demos

Friday is our Free Demo Day!


Come along to the shop on any (or every!) Friday morning at 11.00 am for a half-hour demonstration from one of our expert Bramble Babes – grab a cuppa from the coffee shop, take a seat and learn "how to"s and expert tips on a whole range of patchwork, quilting and general stitching subjects.

NB We will endeavour to keep to our announced schedule of demonstration topics, but occasionally we may have to change the subject without notice. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.
