Learn to sew success

Updated: Jan 31

On Saturday 20th January, Green Hive was delighted to welcome four eager participants to our first ever Parent & Child beginners sewing workshop.

In the first half of the workshop the youngsters aged between 7 and 11, along with their responsible adult, were guided by Julia Tucknott, our fabulous volunteer tutor, in basic sewing skills.

After the break the group went on to make three cute animal themed juggling balls, which all went off to their new homes with their new owners at the end of the session.
