Exactly 1 year ago today I signed the contract and got the keys to my classroom in this stunning converted Victorian Linen Mill in Belfast!

 

Conway Mill

 

After teaching in various places for more than 10 years, it was lovely to step into a bright a spacious room, which I knew would meet all our classroom needs.

 

Scrap busting Saturday Aug18

 

The room takes 12 students per class, and we also have 5 separate cutting tables and 4 ironing stations.

 

The ‘Basting Bay’ gives the ladies room to spray baste their quilts, and the design wall facilitates the laying out of blocks and quilt design.

The ‘Tea/coffee’ making station is an essential feature (no mini-bar yet!) and I even have room for a themed display table and a small haberdashery and pattern shop.

I teach 6 weekly classes and monthly Saturday workshops from September to June, with a slightly different programme over the summer months.

 

Take Wing Butterfly Class Feb18

 

Since I started the classes in January ’18, we have had a total of 203 weekly classes, 11 Saturday workshops, 1 50th birthday party and several charity sewing days!

 

Phew!  What a brilliant year!

 

And to celebrate my first birthday in Conway Mill, we not only have chocolates in class, I’m also discounting all my online patterns by 50%.  Just use the coupon code BIRTHDAY1 at the checkout (one use only).

 

Thank you to everyone for making this new venture an exciting and fulfilling one!  I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

 

Happy sewing!
