Easter Events and Opening Times

This week we’re all set to take part in the Ashford town centre Easter Egg hunt, pop on our hand decorated bonnets ready for the parade and then sit back and consume plenty of chocolate – and maybe find some time for a little bit of sewing on the side. How about you?

If you have small people off school this week then you might be keen to know that we still have spaces on our Easter kid’s classes. Make a rabbit on Monday, sew a drawstring bag on Tuesday, create an applique Easter cushion on Wednesday, sew a simple skirt on Thursday, or decorate an Easter egg hunting bag on Friday – there’s something for everyone in the run up to Easter itself. For full information, times, dates and prices, click on the Classes link at the top of the page and get in touch if you would like to book your little nippers into any of our sessions.

Emporia is also taking part in the Ashford town centre Easter trail from Monday 10th to Saturday 15th April 2017. All you need to do is pop into the shop, collect your Easter Trail form and then visit the various shops that are taking part to find the relevant letters and write then down on your sheet. Prizes will be handed out from the Love Ashford gazebo from 10.30am to 2.30pm on Saturday 15th April.

And if you’re in town on that Saturday to collect your Easter treats, then why not take part in the Easter Bonnet Parade too? Kicking off from 2pm at the Love Ashford gazebo, you can really show off your creative skills with a hand made bonnet, decorated just how you like. And there will be prizes for the best ones, so there’s even more opportunity to win Easter chocs!

Easter weekend is just around the corner, so we thought you should know that the shop will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday, but open as normal on Saturday 19th April 2014. So if you are in need of last minute Easter gifts or fancy a bit of fabric shopping to see you through the bank holiday, pop in, say hello and have a browse of all our lovely stuff.

As next week is all about bunnies, chocolate and having a four day weekend, the blog is taking a little break and attempting to enjoy some spring sunshine and maybe a spot of sewing. We will of course be back in the saddle and ready and eager to go the following week, so don’t go missing us too much. Maybe re-watch the entirety of the Great British Sewing Bee on iPlayer instead – we are sorry to see the end of the series, and can’t believe we have a whole year to wait before Claudia, Patrick, May and another round of crafty sewing enthusiasts are back on are screens. But don’t fret – we have Sewing Bee inspiration for you coming very soon!

Enjoy your Easter break and don’t eat too much chocolate. Alright, do eat too much chocolate, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
