This Improvers sewing course will give you extra practice sewing easy craft projects once you’ve completed one of the Beginners sewing courses at Artisan Stitch.
This is a 4-week course (2 hours per week) to enable you to build on the skills learned on any of the Beginners courses. You’ll gain further confidence at cutting fabric, and using a sewing machine. You can also choose to repeat any of the projects you made in the earlier course if you’d like to improve on your first attempt. Perhaps you’d like to try it in a different size? For example the make-up bag can be made bigger for your holiday toiletries, or use the tote bag technique to make bottle gift bags, or there’s lots of other lovely options.
Who is this aimed at?
Improvers: those who’ve completed any of the Beginners courses and would like to continue to practice sewing and making small craft items.

You’ll have the opportunity to try the other projects offered in the 4-week Beginners course, such as the tote bag, i-pad cover and make-up bag, as well as some new projects such as a patchwork cushion or a plain cushion with a zip. You can also have another go at your original project if you’d like to improve on your first attempt.
