Then as confidence builds move on to simple dressmaking techniques, soft furnishings, bunting etc. I will tailor a course to suit your needs.

1st Vintage Fair Of The Year

Preparations are already in full swing for my first Vintage Fair of the year:  Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair at the Hospitium, Museum Gardens, York on February 12th. Doors open at 11am until 4pm.  Unfortunately I will not be in my usual spot but will be on the 1st Floor.  But as before I will have a wide range of fabrics from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s plus some modern prints with a vintage look.  Looking forward to seeing you.
