We were thrilled to learn that we had managed to bag ourselves a fantastic artist in residence, aka Becky Sunter from Tabby Textiles - our very own keen felter and knitting enthusiast!
Here at Lingfield Point, Darlington, we aim to provide the very best facilities for all of the employees occupying our unique office space so it’s perfect to have Becky on site, cozied up in Unit 21, as part of the Lingfield Life package!
Ensuring culture is woven through everything that goes on at Lingfield Point, Becky runs the popular Knitting Café on Monday evenings and Stitching Knitwits classes every Wednesday lunchtime in canteen alongside providing an occasional yarnbombing explosion.
Getting ready for the season to be jolly, Becky also has some great seasonal and festive workshops up her woolly sleeve for you to get stuck into.

The first wintery workshop Tabby Textiles is showcasing is ‘Weave a Winter Scarf in a Day’ on 28 November and 5 December – an ideal introduction to knitting for all you first-time weavers to create a truly unique Christmas pressie for someone special!
On Thursday 29 November make sure you get stuck into the ‘Felt Bag Making Project’, more suited to the intermediate felter, providing an opportunity to perfect your skills by making a seamless felt bag with tradition felt-making skills.
Finally on Thursday 6 December Tabby Textiles will be hosting a ‘Felt Christmas Decoration-Making Class’, suitable for all – no matter what your felting level of expertise! Popping along to this workshop will allow you to create your very own, unique decorations to hang on the Christmas tree as well as gorgeous gift tags and unique gift ideas!
There are only limited places so we suggest you snap yours up quickly before they all disappear! Classes range from £45-£55 and run from 10.00am until 3.00pm.
In keeping with our green and sustainable ethos here at Lingfield Point, Tabby Textiles steer clear of machinery techniques and stick to the good old traditional methods using locally farmed wool and other materials and equipment – all of which will be available on the day!
A good old cuppa will also be available but it would be a good idea to being your own lunch – should you get peckish after your morning of hard felting and weaving graft.
So – get seasonal and imaginative with those creative hands! Secure your place in at least one of these wintery workshops by calling Becky on either 01325480370 or 07550002773 or drop her an email on email@example.com.
