6 week Sewing Course Wednesdays 7-9pm ongoing class.
Not just the Basics
This course runs on Wednesdays throughout the year and you can hop on for 6 consecutive weeks and stay for as many 6 week intervals as you like, or just finish after your first 6 weeks. You can start when a space is available. Please check for availability on your preferred evening before you book.
Apart from learning how to use a sewing machine and machine accessories we will also learn how to plan for a project, cut out, sew seams, apply linings, apply zips on small projects and larger ones
This is a mixed abilities course where you can step up a bit if you already know the basics, but equally if you're new to it all it's relaxed enough not to be daunting. What's more, because some of the students are already a bit further on in the craft, they might at times be able to work by themselves. This allows me to work a little bit more with the beginners than on the normal beginners course where there are lots more students who need a lot of individual help.
Projects tackled on this course are: simple tote bags, lined tote bags, zipped make-up bags, cushions. Everybody starts with these regardless of your ability as there is always something new to learn. Later on you decide which way to go: Either patchwork, skirts and later on quilts and dresses.
Fabric for first two projects have to be bought here in the shop
