Threads is run by Cathy Reavy (pictured above centre) who aims to deliver creative and innovative workshops that cater for a range of abilities. Reviving needlecraft techniques from around the world,  we cover techniques that can be taught in a day and students will come away with either a finished item or with the knowledge and skills to complete the item. Workshops  run in Alstonefield Village Hall from 10.00 am. to 4.00 pm. The cost for our full day workshops is between £39 and £55 per person including all materials, tea, coffee and home baking.  To book on a workshop click here.   Read our latest newsletter here.
