Workshop sample for our first SASD!

I have made a sample for the Modern Quilted Placemat workshop which will be an optional part of our first Sit And Sew Day. It is made from Moda 12 Days of Christmas fabric by Kate Spain. The strips are 2 inches wide as they come from a scrap bag rather than a jelly roll.

So far we have had a great response to the SASD but there are still places left if you want to join us. Details are in the previous post but I am going to give some good old fashioned directions for those without a Sat Nav!
Come off the M1 at Junction 37 and follow sign to Manchester. You will pass a Toby pub called Dodworth Valley and come to a small roundabout. Turn left at roundabout and then right at the next mini roundabout, passing a Costcutter shop. You will continue past the Holiday Inn and turn left just past the Bannatyne's Health Club. Continue until you see Curry Mahal and Budgens supermarket on your left and turn left just after Budgens. You will pass Dodworth library and Dil Raj restaurant on your right. You turn right a few yards further on opposite the Thornley Arms pub. This road is called Strafford Walk and the Pollyfox Centre is just on your right as you turn. Turn right onto Pollyfox Way to park - there is plenty of space if you turn right at the end of the street.

Hope to see you there! Don't hesitate to get in touch if you need more info.


  1. Hi Janet, what time do we start & finish?

  2. Hi Liz
