Sewing Bee

Sewing Bee

Do you sew, or would you like to learn how to?

The Sewing Bee is usually held on the first Friday of the month from 10-1pm at the Great Warley Rectory Hall, Great Warley Street, CM13 3JP (directly opposite St Mary’s Church).

Each month we will have a project session if you wish to join in, otherwise you may bring your own current project to work on or simply come for chat and be inspired by others

This is a friendly, informal drop in session where we will have sewing machines and lashings of tea, biscuits, cake and and laughter.  There will be a £2 charge each session to cover the hire of the hall.
