Yesterday I mentioned that I was off to Taunton today to visit the Stitch Academy for a Brother sewing machine event. What a lovely day I’ve had. Amy, of Purple Thread Designs, and I bundled into the car after breakfast for our crafty roadtrip and arrived to find the academy in full swing.
The Stitch Academy opened in September providing not only a well stocked shop of fabrics, ribbons and the like but also offering a workspace, a varied range of classes and a permanently steaming kettle. The place emanates warmth, thanks in no small part to proprietresses Pat and Chrissie, two strong and passionate ladies with a vision for the future of craft.
I had a marvellous time watching demonstrations of some amazingly space-aged machines and chatting with like-minded ladies. Thank you to all involved and I urge you all to go and visit for a cup of tea and a chat. Perhaps learn a new skill?
