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.   Read our latest newsletter here. Dates for 2018 workshops are as  follows (but please check our website for availability):
