The charities that we are supporting with this event are Yorkshire Cancer Research, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Dogs Trust, Bridlington RNLI & Project Linus.

The Charity sewing days are 14 /15th January and on Thursday 30th Jan we shall be hosting a coffee morning/afternoon to display our goods before donating them to the charities.


Well on top of all that we shall be adding a longarm quilting machine (Innova with auto pilot) to our facilities too and we are just waiting for it to be shipped from USA.  We are hoping for it be be here with us next week, but really just dont know if that will happen or not - its been a very rocky road!
