About the Course

The Stitch and Make Studio is a vibrant,creative space and it's the perfect place for you to begin your sewing journey.

This workshop will cover everything the baffled novice needs to know. Sewing no longer needs to be a mystery and your sewing machine is not your enemy!

On the day we will cover- how to wind a bobbin and thread up correctly, using the right threads, selecting the right fabrics, what all those dials mean, and how to read a pattern. There's plenty of time to ask questions and take notes. We'll also look at worthwhile books and projects to help keep you motivated.

After lunch you will cut a simple pattern and combine all you’ve learned to make a recycled tote bag.

Abi is a qualified tutor and freelance costume maker with well over 30 years sewing experience. You will receive lots of guidance, support and re-assurance on the day. You are in good hands and will be given lots of handy hints and tips. It is guaranteed you will leave the studio a happier and more confident stitcher.
