Julie Roberts' courses are run at her studio in Easton and she runs a variety of craft classes/day courses at The Bristol Folk House.
As a child I remember making suffolk puffs (large ones) and stitching them together to make a sausage dog draft excluder - a way of using odd fabric and keeping the drafts away - these were the days before central heating and double glazing!
There are lots of tutorials and images using suffolk Puffs online.
