I've spent some time lately thinking long and hard about the direction I want my little business to go in. And whilst I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all at Sew Busy and other venues, I feel the time is right for a change. Watch this space for future developments!
I am so truly grateful for all your support over the last 3 and a half years - it has been wonderful to teach you all. Thank you so much!
I'm sure I'll still run into you all at Sew Busy whilst stocking up on materials for my new projects! I won't be able to stay away lol!
Therefore with effect from Monday 10th July I will no longer be teaching sewing classes.
Q & A
Q: What about the classes between now and 10th July 2017? Some classes have been cancelled, I have contacted all the people this affects. But there are plenty of others still running and some have availability. The website is up-to-date with classes that are available. You can book your place here if you want to.
Q: I have a gift voucher, can I still use it? Gift vouchers can be used for any of the classes running until the 10th July 2017. After that date they will become invalid and any value attached to them will be refunded to the original purchaser.
Q: Why have you made this decision? There isn't really one answer to this. My work to date as The Crafty Nomad has been varied and I'd like to devote more time to some of the other things I have been working on and to allow myself to be more creative. And there really just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything to a good standard. I wouldn't want the standard of the classes to slip because my mind was on other things! I'd like, also, to be more present for my family. Running your own business can be all consuming.
Q: Will you return to teaching in the future? I haven't ruled it out as of yet. I still get a 'buzz' from teaching. I love that moment when the penny clicks and people get it. And love to see all the things my ladies go on to make! But for now it's not the right time.
Q: Will the Blog still be accessible? Absolutely - the blog and all tutorials will still be freely available. In fact I expect I'll be blogging more frequently and hope to be able to show you more interesting sewing stuff!
Q: Can I still buy your patterns? Absolutely! In fact you will see more of these becoming available for purchase over the coming months along with new ones too hopefully! That's an area of my business I would like to grow.
Q: Can I still contact you if I have further questions? Of course you can - just drop me an email.
