Boys who sew

Last week during my  'Creative cushion making for beginners' class, I had 3 boys! Why make a fuss I hear you cry?

Generally in the world of textiles (and my classes) this is quite unusual. At last year's annual pilgrimage to the 'Knitting and Stitching show', male visitors were vary scarce, and seemed to be at the show to assist their partners in carrying their purchases around! In this day and age, why do these gender stereotypes still exist?

Fabrications welcomes more boys to come and learn to sew, have fun in our workshops and prove this stereotype wrong!!
