Services on offer at The Woolpatch

Did you know we offer quite a few specialist services here at The Woolpatch. Ring or Email us for prices on the following services.
Want to learn a new skill?
At The Woolpatch you can learn to knit, to crochet, to sew, to do patchwork, to make your own lampshades and more.

We can arrange one to one classes for you or bigger classes with you and some friends. We tailor the classes for what you want to learn.  Here is a list of classes we have arranged recently.

- How to sew up/finish a knitted garment
- How to make a granny square cushion
- How to do cables in knitting
- Beginners Patchwork
- Making a Patchwork Table Runner
- Make your own lampshades

Many of these were one to one classes.  But recently we organised two afternoons for a group of 6 friends.  Some wanted to learn to knit, the others wanted to pick up new knitting skills.  Irene, our knitting tutor tailored the class perfectly for all.  With plenty of tea and cake from the tea shop next door, a glorious afternoon was had.

We can arrange this for you.

Pop into the shop or email us for more information.  Take a look at @thewoolpatch on Instagram and you'll see loads of pictures of past classes taking place.
At the Woolpatch we act as agents for the wonderful SEWING MACHINE WORLD. 

So that means you can drop off your Sewing Machine at the shop for servicing or repair by Sewing Machine World and when it's ready we'll ring you for pick up!  

That SIMPLE!  

Is your machine not working as well as it used to? Something broken or gone wrong? At Sewing Machine Word, Steve and his team offer servicing and repairs on all brands of domestic sewing machines, with all work carried out by his experienced engineers to the very highest standards. Plus you can relax in the knowledge that all their work is guaranteed for 12 months from the date of service or repair.

Their no-hassle network of pick-up points across East Anglia means you can simply drop off your machine to us at The Woolpatch - he'll pick it up, get it back like new, and drop it back for you to collect at your leisure.
