I am Cathy Reavy and my hand embroidery workshops are based in Alstonefield Village Hall

 “It’s like a Spa day without taking your clothes off”, said a regular attendee!  I aim to deliver creative, high quality workshops that are affordable and friendly. You won’t be given a ‘shopping list’ of things to bring with you – everything is provided, including home-made cakes & biscuits – just bring yourself.

Workshops  run  from 10.00 am. to 4.00 pm.   To book please click here.   Dates for 2018/2019 workshops are as  follows (but please check our website here for availability):
