Hallow'een Special

Wednesday 29th October 7-9pm Repair Surgery Hallow'een Special! 

Come along to this weeks special repair surgery where you can make your very own little ghost from old sheets and carrier bags to hang as a festive decoration. We'll provide all the tools and materials you'll need, so you can make them as friendly or scary as you like! 

As usual we will have a sewing tutor on hand to help you with your mending, and we offer computer help too, so if you are having a problem with your laptop please bring it along.

We'll have refreshments on hand and participation in the Repair Surgery is free, however as there are costs to running it we do ask for donations.

This taster is suitable for children, however they will require parental supervision as scissors and needles will be used.
