With Christmas around the corner why not treat yourself and get prepared early by joining our advent calendar workshop. During the workshop you will have the opportunity to make a personalised tab top advent calendar, with either individual lined pockets or bands of pockets. There will be pre-prepared numbers and a selection of applique shapes should you choose to accessorise your pockets. Fabric advent calendars are a great feature piece in any festive decor but are also a great alternative to chocolate based ones (as you can put tiny gifts or favoruite sweeties inside). They can also be used year after year.
