Arty Postcards at Erina

Kay Hearland’s class “Arty Postcards” was held at Erina last week.  Kay is such an inspiring and informative teacher.  The ladies loved the class and some even popped in the next day to say what a wonderful time they’d had.

There’ll only be 1 more opportunity to see Kay at Erina.  Although she is holding her “Realistic Landscape” class on 25th/26th August, all places are  taken.  However, there are still a couple of vacancies for her class, ”Tactile Surface Embellishment” on 14 October.  But you’ll have to be quick! To book, phone 02 4365 1127.

News update on our TV Winner

Posted in Competition, Events

Jane and her family are very thankful to Hobbysew for their big win as just after they heard they had won the prize, their old TV blew up.  So the sports loving teenagers in Jane’s family were really excited not to miss Olympics.  Jane is a busy mum and a textile teacher at a local high school and has been sewing for family and friends for 30 years.  She needed a unique fabric to make a gift for a friend so she popped into Hobbysew Erina which has a very wide range. Well, the friend loved the gift and Jane’s family LOVE their new TV.
