What's included in the price?

Inkberrow Design Centre is part of a complex called the Old Needle Works in Redditch where arts and crafts can be celebrated. Here we have 5 fully equipped studios with all the sewing machines you could wish for. You will need a basic sewing kit of scissors, pins and an unpicker, but the tutor does have a small selection for you to borrow in the class until you are able to get one.
