The Stitch Academy

16 Nov

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 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?
