Textiles Class

New tutor Wendy Sweetman of Sweet Patches delivered a two day fabric workshop at Shambellie House to a full class. 5* feedback from tutor and participants.

Wendy contacted us to say “Home and very, very happy after a fantastic weekend teaching at Shambellie House for the first time.  I could not have asked for a nicer group of ten ladies on my jacket workshop.  Some had never sewn a garment before, some had never put patchwork together before, some had never done either but all are well on their way to completing their jackets with new skills and confidence.  I never tire of seeing the same pattern reinterpreted in so many different colour ways and all of these ladies chose stunning colour combinations between their inner and outer jackets.  Thank you so much to Shambellie House who are incredible hosts for these events – teas and coffees magically appeared at just the right moment with biscuits and cake too and the lunchtime soup and sandwiches were delicious. ”

Our participants gave the weekend 5 stars. “I’ve really enjoyed it. Feel I’ve learned some very enjoyable new skills and a confidence boost. Thank you to Wendy and all the staff.” “Fantastic especially the constant supply of tea by the lovely staff!” ” What a super weekend.” ” Have enjoyed the workshop very much. everyone very helpful. Great tutor and hope to come back to more workshops. Thank you all very much. “
