HOBBYCRAFT in Altrincham is offering people the chance to learn something new in 2014 through its ‘New Year, New Hobby’ classes.

Those looking to make and create will have the chance to try their hand at sewing, knitting and crochet patterns, as well as card making.

The sessions will take place at the store, which is based at Altrincham Retail Park, between 11am-3pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout January.

Store manager, Maria Barlow, said: “A new year is the perfect time to rediscover a past hobby or start a new one.

“The skills we have picked out are all gaining huge popularity here in Altrincham and will be perfect for those looking for creative ways to learn a new skill or do something fun together as a family.
