Husqvarna Night @Hobbysew Top Ryde

Everyone had a really fab time at Top Ryde’s recent “Husqvarna Feet Night”. Lindsey is a great teacher and she captivated her audience with her practical approach to demonstrations, made it look effortless and easy for customers to see the benefit in purchasing the different feet.

Rave reviews all round with plenty of people purchasing accessories to make their sewing easier and more fun, and the Husqvarna Club welcomed one new member.  So keep an eye on Top Ryde’s class list for upcoming evenings with Husqvarna for your chance to join in.

Kay Haerland’s Textile Surface Embellishment

At Hobbysew Top Ryde last Sunday, Kay had her students engrossed from the beginning, as is usual with her classes.  In fact the store opened an hour earlier as the class couldn’t wait to get started and Kay arrived full of enthusiasm and fun ideas for turning out fabulous quilts in Top Ryde’s well appointed, creative workspace.
