I’m utterly thrilled to have 5 places for my lovely readers to win on the “Something Borrowed, Something Blue & Made By You” workshop.  This is fab DIY bridal workshop which will provide you with all the materials and know-how to create your own, one-of-a-kind headpiece whilst chatting to other brides-to-be, munching on homemade cake, and generally having a wonderful evening.

The workshop caters for all levels of sewers, from those who can’t thread a needle to those who are more experienced.  Throughout the class, Nicola is able to offer one to one guidance to help perfect your sewing technique and suggest ways in how to personalize your headpiece.  Silver Sixpence workshops create a lovely, relaxed environment for brides to socialise and share tips, tricks and inspiration!

Silver Sixpence provides all the sewing materials such as bases, antique laces, pretty trims, ribbons, one-off jewels, gems, buttons and feathers that you will need to create your headpiece.  If you have a sentimental piece of jewellery that you would like to use, you can bring it along and Nicola can help you to incorporate it into your design.
