Craft Sewing Course

The Craft Sewing Course is a short improver-level course to practice your sewing skills.This course is designed as a follow-on from a Beginners Sewing Course  for those who’d like to continue sewing but who don’t want to make clothes. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while.

  • Your choice of easy sewing projects including an envelope cushion (and a patchwork option), a quilted zipped pouch, a sewing organiser roll, a cross-body bag, a reversible fold-up tote shopper, a padded tablet cover and plenty others.

There will be a strong focus on upcycling; project options will include how to turn old jeans into a patchwork cushion, or how to make a book cover from fabric remnants.  Charity shop curtains or bedding can become handy shoppers.

You will need to bring your own fabric for your project – I’ll provide details when you book).  A small selection of Fat Quarter packs and other materials are for sale in the studio – please check for availability.

Artisan Stitch holds a Certificate of Excellence and was rated Best Sewing Classes Edinburgh in 2019.  In 2020, they won the UK enterprise award for Best Sewing Classes.  The Best Private Sewing Education & Training award followed for 2021/22.  The only Edinburgh sewing classes recommended by Queen Margaret University.

Sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own if you have one.

You will need a basic sewing kit:  fabric scissors, small embroidery-style trimming scissors, paper scissors (for cutting patterns), pins, tape measure, quick unpick, fabric marking pens/pencils
