  • Elianapidone@gmail.com 06 May at 14:20

    Would love to do workshop on 14 th May in Dublin, Henry street, for sewing (easy sew top).
    Please, could you confirm availability?
    Thanks
    Eliana

    • Dolores O'Connor 06 May at 14:25

      Hi Eliana,

      This is a drop in workshop so no need to book. Hope you enjoy the demonstration.

  • Mary Orpen 06 May at 16:59

    Why are there no demonstrations in Waterford? I would love to be able to make the easy sew tops. Thanks.

    • Dolores O'Connor 11 August at 13:20

      Hi Mary, unfortunately our demos are only in Hickeys stores, and a few Home Focus stores. We hope to get to Waterford soon. We will publish these demos/patterns on the blog after they take place, so stay tuned! Thanks Mary.

  • Do you ever run workshops in Waterford?

    • Dolores O'Connor 11 August at 13:21

      Hi Susan, unfortunately we won't be running any in Waterford this time round, but we hope to expand soon. We will be publishing all demos and patterns on the blog after they take place, so stay tuned! Thank you for your query.

  • Frances White 20 August at 19:34

    very disappointed that there are no bridal events nor any other events that are scheduled to happen in Wexford. Is there any point in my receiving your emails of upcoming offers if they do not apply to the South East of the country?
    Sincerely yours Frances White

    • Alice Goodwin 25 August at 14:33

      Hi Frances,

      We're sorry to hear that you couldn't attend any of our demos. We do hope to expand our demos in the near future, and will be sure to let you know via our email updates.

  • Mary Goggin 23 August at 10:46

    Thanks for list. Looks great but no good for the south east. Mary

    • Alice Goodwin 25 August at 14:33

      Hi Mary,

      We're sorry to hear you couldn't attend one of our demos. We do plan on expanding our demos to more of our stores in future, so I'll be sure to take this feedback on board.

  • Cora Noonan 26 August at 19:41

    Hi there,
    My 7yr old son is very interested in learning to sew. Would your 'easy sew skirt' and dress demonstrations be suitable?

    thank you.
    Cora Noonan

  • Paula O'Brien 03 September at 13:26

    I would love to see the card making demo's/ classes coming to limerick.
    Regards
    Paula

  • Patricia jordan 03 September at 15:28

    Would love if the Christmas craft, cards etc could be given in Wexford or maybe tutorials on line.

    Regards

  • Niamh Travers-Kenny 05 October at 16:38

    How busy are the demonstrations, would love to attend one on roman blinds and some Christmas ones. Wondering how many people go roughly and if i should get there early?

    Thanks

    • Alice Goodwin 17 October at 10:11

      Hi Niamh. The demonstrations are first come first serve, and can be busy! I would recommend getting there around 15 minutes before the start time to ensure you get a place.
