Workshop FAQs

*** COVID 19 UPDATE ***

To all our lovely Workshop Attendees and Friends

Like so many other self employed businesses it is with a heavy heart that I have closed the studio following Government restrictions on social contact to reduce the transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The most important thing is for everyone to heed government advice to try and reduce the transmission of this terrible virus.

All classes, workshops and other events are cancelled until further notice. In line with our cancellation policy you will receive a refund to your original payment method, please be patient whilst we contact everyone to arrange this. We are currently contacting those booked in April, May, June and July will review workshops following July in line with Government advice.  (At the moment we hope to re-commence workshops in September).

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting Needle & Thread, I hope you are your families stay well and look forward to seeing you all again once this has all blown over.

Much love
