"I highly recommend Beeches Fabrics  to all Local Mums. It's wonderful to have a fabric shop so close with a fantastic range of fabrics. The staff were really friendly and helpful when I picked the fabric for my dress" 
Catherine Fasnacht, Local Mum

"I highly recommend Auntie Lesley's Sewing Emporium to Local Mums. My daughter Layla loves the quilt that I commissioned Lesley to make for her for her birthday. Now all her friends want one!"
Esta Jacobs, Local Mum

Auntie Lesley's Sewing Emporium
After the success of BBC TV’s Great British Sewing Bee lots of people seem to have got the sewing bug!

Lesley Ann Albiston, with her sewing skills, and Olga Jackson, with her fabric shop in Carshalton Beeches (Beeches Cleaners and Fabrics), have formed a partnership. They are setting up sewing classes in dressmaking, patchwork and quilting to accommodate this growing interest in sewing and establish a little community.  

The classes are held at the refurbished studio at the back of the shop which stocks beautiful fabrics sourced from around the world. Starting with the basics for absolute beginners, Lesley will help decipher the jargon of dress patterns and piece together the mysteries of patchwork and quilting. 

We are also establishing weekly drop-in coffee mornings where you can make a small item, like a lavender bag, have a coffee and friendly chat. 

Drop-in coffee mornings:
Starting Wednesday, June 5th, 10am-12pm
Beeches Fabrics Cleaners, 66 Banstead Rd, Carshalton Beeches
Limited spaces, call Lesley on 07971054568 to reserve a space!

Upcoming courses:
Patchwork and Quilting: June 7th, 2013, 11am - 1pm
Dressmaking:  June 8th, 2013,  11:30am - 1:30pm

More courses starting in September!
