I think I am safe to utter the C word now. Preparations are well under way and it’s important to make sure your loved ones know exactly what to get you this Christmas when it comes to anything crafty!

So how can we help make sure Santa brings you exactly what you want this Christmas?


We sell vouchers for all of our classes in whatever denomination you would like.  Simply pop the amount in the box, click pay and a voucher code will be sent directly to your inbox which you can print and pop into a gift card.  Having your voucher stored in this way means you can use the credits as you please, either as full payment for a class or part payment, using the same code the next time you book towards another class.  Buy vouchers HERE

If you have a specific class in mind and know the dates you are available, simply send Santa a link, tell them the date to book and ask them to pop your details and the words CHRISTMAS GIFT in the comments at check out.  We will make sure we don’t send any spoilers such as confirmation emails directly to you before the big day!

Sewing machines & overlockers

If you are after a sewing machine this year then we have a fantastic partnership with Sewing Machines Direct.  Not only do they offer a great service but they also donate money to our chosen charity of choice MIND the mental health charity for every sale we generate for them.  Drop Claire a line and she will happily recommend some of their machines to you, once you know which one you want, ask Santa to get in touch with her via email and leave the rest up to our team of elves.

Don’t forget to ask for a voucher for a 121 Get to Know you sewing machine session to go with it.


Are you after a new rotary cutter, daylight lamp or set of beautiful knitting needles? We obviously stock the basics in the shop but we can order in almost anything crafty from our suppliers and get a quick turnaround.  Simply find the items you want online, send the links to your family and ask them to contact us.  We will match all the major competitors on price and get your goodies in for you.  They can pay by card over the phone and arrange to collect from the shop or we can post them out.

Wish list

If you have a wish list you would like to leave with us then please just send it in an email, you can then ask Santa to get in touch with us directly and the elves can make sure you don’t have a disappointing Christmas.  Last year one lucky lady had an entire dressmaking course and a new sewing machine bought for her by her other half because she had been cheeky and added them both to her list!

If there is anything we can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.  As a small independent business we rely heavily on our customers supporting us at this time of year.  A good Christmas for us means a good Christmas for our families!  This year my Son wants a Nintendo Switch!!  Mr Amazon doesn’t need your money and his customer service is not as good as ours ;-) 

Merry Christmas from all the team at BTHQ
