Living just a few miles away from the Cycle Cafe in Cumbria's lovely northern fells we were delighted when she agreed to take some courses here in Greystoke during 2015. Participants will need to bring half a metre of both an outer fabric (heavy weight, curtain fabric is good or perhaps heavy linen)  and a lining fabric (quilt weight cotton or cotton lawn) If the outer fabric has a large pattern, a metre would be better to allow for pattern matching. Please also bring matching thread, fabric scissors, pins, ruler and a hand sewing needle also helpful.
Participants will need a metre of both outer fabric (heavy weight, curtain fabric is good, heavy linen) and lining fabric (quilt weight cotton or cotton lawn) For contrasting piping a fat quarter of a contrasting fabric is needed, otherwise we can use the outer fabric. Emma uses her own patterns, which you will be able to take away with you along with full instructions after the course. Marion is an experienced spinner, weaver, dyer, knitter and crocheter as well as being a tutor and designer.

The cats always enjoy it too and can be found in a sleepy ball somewhere amongst the fleeces! During this fascinating day , Marion will teach you all about different types of sheep along with corresponding fleeces, their various merits and different uses with many samples on hand to explore.
You will sort through some fleeces and learn how to prepare the fibres using hand carders.
She spends the summer painting flowers in her studio at the foot of the Cheviots Hills and is a member of the Council of the National Trust.
Emma provides traditional frames to use of 3ft x 4ft, ideal for large floor rugs and the type for which she is so well known. You can use the frame for the day and just pay Emma for the detached hessian at the end - or you may buy the frame and take it home for £40 - decide on the day. Similarly with the hookie tool - these are completely hand made by the only man in the country who makes them.

Once booked with Emma  you could start looking out for materials to bring with you for our rug. Marion is also a founder member of The Wool Clip co-operative, selling her fine silk and merino woven scarves, yarns and clothing.
