Service Description

If you have never used a sewing a sewing machine before (or it has been a while...), then you have found the right course for you! This is a nine week programme designed to begin you on your sewing journey.  Starting with the basics of how to set up your sewing machine, over the course of the programme, you will learn all the essential skills you need to create your own skirt.  Along the way, you will build your own sample book of all the techniques that you will be able to refer back to at home any time, and a range of other projects including a cup cosy, bowl cosy, tablet cover, and more! You will also learn how to follow a pattern, leaving the class with a full pattern for your finished skirt, as well as learning about the sustainability issues facing the world of fashion. You will receive: * Expert tuition * Workbook * Sample book * Cotton to create all projects except your final skirt * Use of the class sewing machines - Brother Innov-is 15 * Haberdashery to complete all projects except your final skirt * Use of any sewing tools required, such as scissors, tape measures and pins. You will need: * Approximately 1-2m of woven fabric to create your final skirt.  Suitable fabric choices will be discussed in class, including where you can purchase them from.  A small selection of appropriate fabrics are available to buy in the studio.   * A zip and hook & bar for your skirt.  This will be discussed in class. This course is suitable for complete beginners or those needing to refresh their skills. Classes are limited to 7 people.   A range of class times are available to allow you to select the one which suits you best.  If your preferred option is unavailable, you can be added to a waitlist for a future class at that time.  If you are worried about having to miss classes for your holidays, please know that I try very hard to offer free catch up sessions for missed lessons as I know life can get in the way.
