This workshop is suitable for beginners/intermediate sewers. If you have attended my "Get to know your sewing machine" or other beginners workshops, then this is the perfect next step!
Sewing in a zip isn't as hard as you may think, making a zipped pouch is a good place to learn the basics, you can then progress to making many more items and even dressmaking.
We will make two bags, both with lining and a zip.
Once you have mastered the technique you will be able to make them in varying sizes for different uses, to suit you. These make great gifts too and so much nicer to give a handmade gift!
You will need a zip foot for your machine most machines come with one in your accessory pack (if you are not sure if you have one please contact me to discuss)
Fabric and zips are provided in the cost
• You’ll learn how to use a zipper foot
• Top stitch the zip in place
• Add a lining
• Make a square base
You must be comfortable threading up a machine unaided and sewing basic seams before attending this class. (If you need help with this I also do 1-2-1 lessons to get you started)

Really happy with this course. It completely delivered what it promised and more. Judi was a great teacher and a lot of fun. She went out of her way to adapt the course for my wants and take me through all that I needed very patiently. I like the zoom 1-2-1 in these times and pleased that it worked so well. I'll be looking for more like this, and definitely more from Judi. Thank you.
