Autumn 2011 Classes in Friendly Plastic

Here is the list of classes that I can offer you for the Autumn. Perhaps I will get to meet you there.

All classes, with the exception of the Caernarfon class can be booked directly with the venue.  Prices vary depending on the venue.  Class sizes are not large, so places are limited, but you do get lots of attention!

For those of you who are wondering about Coles Sewing Centre – it used to be called The Husqvarna Studio, they have just changed the name.  Same great venue with lift, great sandwiches and friendly staff.
