Hometown Happenings

What a great start to the New Year!

This is Marion owner of Hometown in Rochester, with some of her lovely new fabrics.


We had such fun on the workshops last week I thought I’d post a few pics of new projects well underway.

Beginners embarking on their new hobby with excellent results.

      Really, that’s amazing, does that mean your vintage goings on are local too? The new class list will be out very soon and I’ll be teaching there again in March πŸ™‚ Love your vintage buttons!

    Very jealous of the workshops available in the U.K. – it’s so much more fun doing stuff with others of like mind. I am in a mini sewing bee here in France – very mini, just me and one other – but I still like to have that exchange of ideas and skills once a week.
