Marche Grundmann's Workshops

I spent an interesting evening meeting Marche Grundmann. She lives nearby in Oswaldkirk,her home an Aladdin's cave of home made treasures. She sells her creations-patchwork bags and throws,cushions and lavender bags.Vintage blankets are recycled and embroidery is painstaking done to make attractive hot water bottle covers,books covers,little hearts ,big hearts and a host of "i want " goodies. Marche has hoards of vintage material all neatly stacked for you to pick and choice if you are having a class at Marche's home.Buttons,ribbons and wools in a hue of colours. Woolen chickens and Easter bunnies,eggs cosies and sweet little dolls and mice. Ideally situated from here if you wish to spend a few hours learning a new skill or just gathering ideas to make then give impressive gifts. More details telephone Marche on -01439 788798. Although very accommodating classes are limited to 6 people on the hand sewing course and 3 people for the machine sewing. Classes can be on any day or the week or in the evening if that suits better.
