Sew Me Something is a place where people who have always wondered about sewing & creating things... people who were put off sewing at school but still have an old machine tucked away somewhere... people who love sewing but are stuck for ideas or inspiration... They can get together; chat, share ideas & learn new skills over a cup of tea & a piece of homemade cake.
We have our own range of Sewing Patterns, Workshops, Courses & Retreats.
I did this course a while ago now. I had always wanted to learn to sew, but I didn't know where to start, as I couldn't even thread a sewing machine. So this seemed the perfect course for me. After my first evening, I went home with a cushion, not only had a sewn it, I had learnt how to appliqué on to it and made my own button ( I was so proud). Couldn't wait for the following week! Since finishing this course, I have attended others and learnt so much. Have made lots new friends whilst attending workshops here.
Response from Sew Me Something:Thats really good to hear! These Introduction courses are designed to work just like this; teaching the basics and giving people the confidence they need to begin sewing on their own. Thanks Sharon!
A brilliant day, Rachel was a fantastic teacher and I learned so much. The pace was relaxed and I felt very comfortable asking silly questions! Learnt to use an overlocker and now obviously I want one. I finished the dress in a day and it is the first time I have successfully made a wearable garment. I feel very confident to try another one on my own now. Highly recommended.
Response from Sew Me Something:Thank you so much Jill, really pleased you enjoyed the course. You won't regret purchasing an overlocker!
Fantastic course! I went on this course with no knowledge of dressmaking. I knew my way around the sewing machine, thanks to Intro into sewing course. Left with a new dress and the bug for making my own clothes. Perfect small class in a bright, spacious studio.
Response from Sew Me Something:Glad you are enjoying our workshops Sharon and pleased to hear you have the dressing making bug!
I had no previous experience of quilting beforehand. Claire was very patient and was able to answer, any questions I had. I learnt how to use a quilting ruler, a rotary cutter and now know what some of the feet on my sewing machine are used for. I brought with me, my 6 fat quarters, that I wanted to use and was able to purchase the backing and binding in the shop, the batting was provided. Lovely small, friendly class. Tea and homemade cake. Went home with a beautiful quilt, that I'm very proud of, which I made for my granddaughters first birthday.
Response from Sew Me Something:Those 'other' feet with your sewing machine have finally come in handy eh! So pleased you enjoyed the Quilting Course, hopefully you will continue to use the skills you learnt and make another. Thanks Sharon.
