The Sewing Room

(Last Updated On: August 6, 2018)

Are you aged 50 or over? The Sewing Room is offering free community mindful sewing sessions in Torbay during August. Three community centres in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham are running weekly sessions where we can come together to create beautiful banners representing each area – learning about the five ways to well being with a different hands-on approach by connecting and making new friends, being in the
moment & learning a new skill.

Come and join in these free sewing sessions at one of your local community venues. A warm welcome awaits at an inspiring, creative session where you connect, make friends, and do some Mindful hand sewing helping to create a Sew Fab Community Banner.
