A stitch in time saves nine. We might not be able to teach you to make a stitch in time, but if you want to know how to sew real-life garments and items for the home you have come to the right place. Sewing is one of the oldest textiles arts; apparently the Stone Age people used to stitch using cat guts or veins. Nowadays you can simply go to your local haberdashery (or supermarket) to find a rainbow of coloured cotton (or the cheaper polyester) thread. Great enjoyment can be had by being able to adjust and create your own tailored look. Learning to sew is not limited to period-era-loving maidens and Grannies, as sewing is massively on-trend! Fashion students often need to polish up on their basic tailoring skills and anyone desiring a unique or simply made to measure wardrobe should start scouring these courses now!
