About Us

We are Lizzie and Marian.

We started our creative workshops to share our knowledge and and love of sewing.  We operate from our workshops in the High Street, Church Stretton, and at White Hart Cottage in All Stretton, where we can accommodate a maximum of 5 students, giving one to one tuition in a group setting.  See the Workshops pages for our range of all day workshops as well as weekly classes and drop in sessions.

We sometimes go further afield if requested, and can bring materials and our 'tools of the trade' with us; we are happy to work with small groups, of up to 10 people, such as community groups and hen parties.

We have different specialisations, but work together;  both of us have our own businesses selling the products we make, these are:

Forget me not Quilts - www.forgetmenotquilts.co.uk
Lizzie Charlton Handbags - www.lizziecharltonhandbags.co.uk
We make most of our products to order - special requests to suit our clients.
We have also started a new range of workshops of simple dressmaking and gifts, and are planning to work with young people in 'out of school hours' to kick start their interest in sewing, and other creative projects.
Church Stretton is a lovely market town, nestling beside The Long Mynd in the South Shropshire Hills - well worth a visit in it's own right, but made even more enjoyable by combining it with one of our workshops.  There is plenty of accommodation in the town and close by to suit all tastes - please visit www.churchstretton.co.uk to find out more.
We look forward to welcoming you to Church Stretton!
