Sewing days: one to one

The dress-Choose the length

About the Course

Can you sew in a straight(ish) line with your sewing machine? - or would you like to learn?

Can you (just about) remember how to thread it - or would you like to learn?

If the answer is yes, then you'll be able to make one of the many projects we have on offer for you.

A fun, fabulous festival dress, palazzo pants, an apron dress, cushion covers, how to make a sample curtain, how to copy a favourite item of clothing, etc, etc -on this course we can accommodate what you need to know !

We will be using fabric that has been washed and rescued from a previous life.

Our lovely bright studio space is a great spot for you to get bold and brave with your sewing.

We're based less than 10 minutes walk from historic Wallingford's town centre, and have plentiful parking.

What you can do by the end of the course will be dependent on what we're showing, but could include:
-Discuss re-cycling fabric, and fabric fire safety
-Draft a basic pattern
-Create seams
-Machine sew using straight stitch and zig-zag stitch on your machine
-Construct a fabric channel
-Use a measuring stick to ensure your hem is straight
-Finish raw edges
-Compare options for hemming
