Beginners Sewing Course XL

Thursday 9 January - Thursday 13 February
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course, so there’s two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.

It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

Improve Your Dressmaking

Friday 10 January
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Improve your dressmaking is a one-day session that will help you obtain a better finish to your home-sewn garments.

Do you enjoy dressmaking but aren’t happy with the finish? Do you have bumps at the bottom of your zips. Or do your facings just refuse to lie flat? Would you like to improve your dressmaking but don’t have the time to commit to a course? In this class, I’ll share a few techniques you can use to improve the look of your dressmaking. Instead of wrestling with making a whole garment, we’ll concentrate on learning some foundation dressmaking techniques by making samples of each technique. There are yours to take home for future reference.
