… and relax …

What a fantastic first week we’ve had at our new HQ!

After a massively busy week moving into our new workshop we have really enjoyed being able to get on with what we’re actually here for.

Monday started with a new daytime Come and Sew session. 13:30-16:00 followed by our usual 19:00-21:30. Both had plenty of attendees. We even had someone come along after a meeting they couldn’t get out of, just to see the new workshop! 🙂

Tuesday saw our inaugural Knit and Natter which was really well attended. There’s still space for more knitters, crocheters and other yarn enthusiasts, so do come along this week if you can knit/crochet/weave or want to learn to. Lots of experience and patience sat around our table.

Wednesday sessions started first thing at 09:00. We welcomed our first patchworker to this. She arrived with a stack of blocks and left with a fully sashed cushion top. Take a look …

What great progress! Left with the skills to have a go at another at home with other already made blocks.

We took our first deliveries on Wednesday. First one was blind header rails via a courier and then even more excitement came through the post in the form of technology! iZettle has come to WizardMakes so we can now take card payments. Woo! Hoo!

Thursday was a quieter day with just one session in the afternoon. Quiet but productive.

Debs then went up to Hazel Grove to do some private tuition; two hours spent helping a lady perfect some finishing techniques. We focussed on zips, buttons, buttonholes and hemming of stretch knits. I can’t wait to see what comes out of that sewing room next!

The rest of Thursday daytime and all of Friday, Debs worked on commissions in her new, HUGE, pristine studio. It’s safe to say that we have found our happy place. Hope to see you join us soon.
