With cold, wet weather making us all stay indoors, we’ve come up with a range of Winter patchwork projects to keep you busy.
We also offer you a choice of where to complete your projects. Whether you prefer to hunker down in your own home to work away on your project, or you can join in one of our workshops with a group of stitchers, we have a winter patchwork project to suit you! Our place or yours…you choose.
Patchwork at Our Place
Sometimes during Winter, the thought of being trapped inside can be depressing. Do not despair! Let us come to your rescue. If you need to get out of the house and meet with like-minded stitchers, then get involved with one of our in-house workshops.
At The Country Yard, we have our own purpose-built workshop space which is perfectly appointed for the wide range of classes we hold each year. It’s a great opportunity to create a beautiful patchwork project in a fun atmosphere with expert advice and the best equipment at hand.
