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.

Learn Continental Knitting

Sunday 9 February
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Are you a traditional British style knitting and interested in exploring a different way of knitting? I personally find Continental style knitting much easier on my hands & wrists, and is a more economical movement (which might mean you could knit faster). Come along to this relaxed 2 hour session to uncover this wonderful way of knitting.

This workshop could be suitable to a brand new knitter as well, although the learning curve will be high.

Materials Required

  • 50grams of either DK or Aran weight wool
  • Suitable needles for your wool, either straights or circular (4.0mm for DK wool or 5.0mm for Aran weight)
