It’s back to basics this Monday at Granny Greens where we will be showing people what all those cogs and pulleys on their sewing machines really do. Whether it’s that you bought a sewing machine a while ago that you’re too afraid to take the cover off, or that you just want to try out all the extras that came with your machine, why not come along?

If you made a patchwork in last weeks session please bring this along with the other cushion-making materials.

You will need:

– Fabric in a contrasting or matching colour to your patchwork. You will need about half a metre and the fabric will need to be at least one and a half metres wide. This can be cotton/polycotton or a thicker fabric like corduroy or a wool mix.

– Three buttons (approx 1 inch or 2.5cm wide) to close the cushion.

– Sewing cotton in a neutral or matching shade.

– One 16 inch cushion pad (don’t worry if you don’t get this in time, it’s not compulsory)

If you are having trouble finding these, let us know, as we will bring along some materials too, but again there will be a small fee (cost price).

If you would like to book a place on the sewing machine workshop and / or you would be kind enough to lend your sewing machine for the evening, get in touch with Deborah (who will be running the workshops) at

Both the workshop and drop-in will not be at the Red Squirrel but will be held in Room 1  Central Hall, 2 West Tollcross, EH3 9BP (entrance across the road from Lava and Ignite nightclubs, near the Fire Station). Pop by anytime for the workshop or for our usual craft drop-in if you don’t fancy the sewing machine frenzy! Deliciously refreshing refreshments will be provided! (Please feel free to bring along any treats and snacks you fancy)

We will be meeting from 6pm to 8pm as usual, and next week (March 12th) we will be back at the Red Squirrel for our craft drop-in.
