If you used to sew but have got a bit rusty, then this 1-day sewing workshop will be a useful refresher to top up your sewing and dressmaking techniques. I’ll take you through some common sewing tasks that you’ll need if you’d like to start sewing again, and throw in all the tips I’ve learned in my sewing experience.

The Refresher Sewing Class will cover:

how to sew perfect straight lines, and accurate seams
how to turn corners and sew smooth curves
how to neaten raw edges
trimming and pressing
whether to notch or clip curves
what is staystitching and why you should do it
when you need to use easestitching
how to make facings lie flat
how to sew darts
how to sew in a zip
what does ‘stitch in the ditch’ mean, and when to do it.
edgestitching and topstitching to create impact.
The list above are all common dressmaking techniques if you want to achieve a neat professional-looking finish to your sewing projects. You may have forgotten how to do these, or perhaps you haven’t learned these before? In addition, if there’s a technique that you can’t seem to get to grips with, then please let me know in advance of the class, and I’ll try to cover it if there’s time. You will make samples of most of these techniques, and will have notes to take away so you will be able to use these as a reference for your future sewing.

In addition, I’ll tell you about how to choose the best needle for your sewing project, the different types of thread you can use etc, and lots of other information that you’ll need to start sewing again.
