A tutor has been provided by South Tipperary VEC and sewing classes have been arranged which will be held in Burncourt Community Hall beginning on Thursday, February 9, at 7.30pm. The tutor is Norrie Edmunds and this could be a great opportunity to upgrade old skills or learn some new ones in the use of a sewing machine. The cost is €E20 for six classes. If you are interested please contact Margaret 087/2887615, Breeda 087/6967661
