Next season's sashiko courses
I will be announcing the dates for the next Edinburgh sashiko course very soon. My next course will run from the autumn and will be four full weekend sessions of Saturday and Sunday, not individual Saturdays, so if you need to travel from a bit further afield and stay over in Edinburgh, the logistics will work. Edinburgh Patchwork, where I teach the course, is on Bellevue Street, and there are lots of guesthouses, hotels and apartments nearby (try looking on www.booking.com or www.travelodge.co.uk). It is a 20 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station or 14 minutes on the no.8 bus (get off at Mansfield Place). There is on street free parking on weekends too. If you are coming up to Edinburgh from further afield in the UK, it is 47 minutes by tram to York Place plus a short walk to the shop. Cost will be £80 per weekend (£40 per day).

Stockton dates are Saturdays, 10.30 - 4p.m. at All Saint's Church, Hartburn, Stockton-on-Tees, over 8 sessions - dates are 22nd September 2018, 27th October, 17th November, 8th December, 12th January 2019, 9th February 2019, 9th March and 27th April. Cost will be £40 per session, payable one session in advance (first session payment is your deposit). Please contact me if you are interested in joining us.
