With the popularity of the Great British Sewing Bee helping to raise the profile of home sewing and make do and mend, I will continue to run my sewing courses and workshops throughout next year.
Beginners can come along and learn the basics needed to begin sewing on a machine. You will be introduced to the necessary tools equipment and techniques to help you start sewing safely and with confidence! Materials and equipment will be supplied for each session but if you have your own sewing machine, you may wish to bring it along.
More advanced sessions will also continue, covering the use of commercial patterns and techniques and providing the opportunity to make your own garments, accessories and household textiles.
