About the Course

A series of fortnightly sewing skills workshops run on Saturdays, where you can attend a single workshop, a whole day or several workshops to create a whole course to suit you. General rule of thumb the morning workshops are more basics for beginners/ intermediates and the afternoons are more advanced for very competent beginners and intermediate sewers.

Some of the topics that will be covered are:
• Sewing machine basics, Overlocker basics, Coverstitch Basics,
• Basic seams & hems, Machine Maintainence
• More hems, blind, twin, roll,
• Patterns and body measurements
Key Clothing Alteration Tips
• Zips - centred, lapped, open end & zips - concealed, fly
• Buttons & buttonholes, pleats & godets

Please click on "View website" to see which workshop runs on which date.

Price starts at £20 for individual morning or afternoon workshops, £40 for whole day,
3 or more W/S reduces to £17.50 each and 10 or more to £15 each.
A £5 non refundable deposit to secure your place on each workshop.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All machines, fabrics and haberdashery are provided in all the workshops. However you are welcome to bring own machine if you prefer.
It is advisable to bring your own Overlocker or Cover Stitch machine to those specific workshops as I only have limited availability.

Drinks and flapjacks provided. If staying all day please bring a packed lunch or you can pop out for lunch.

I do have an Air BnB double room available for overnight stays if you are coming a distance.
