Justhands-on.tv Stitching Getaway

We have details of our fantastic new getaway for you with Sylvia Critcher and Kate Percival in March 2017. It’s being held at the magnificent Tortworth Court Hotel in the Cotswolds and you can enjoy  2 days of sewing and learning with dinner, bed and breakfast (and you can take your swimming cossie and treat yourself in their lovely spa).

What better time to give your other halves a hint about a Christmas present treat for you – tell them to act quickly though as places are going fast. And if you are buying it as a present for someone, do let us know and we can send you a special note to give them.

Subscriptions

Some of you have noticed that we have a new webpage for subscriptions and it looks a little bit different to what you might expect to see at justhands-on.tv. The reason behind this is that we are using a new subscription system for fixed term subscriptions and the good news is that it requires fewer steps for you to place your order (and no need for a Paypal account).
