What to bring to class: Please bring your own personal project. If you are not sure what you would like to do, bring some ideas of something similar or some images, we can take it from there.  Check out The Essential Sewing Kit for where to buy fabrics and lots of other resources.

What is covered in the session:

  • .In a nutshell, whatever project you fancy taking on, we will show you how. Project based classes allow each student not only to learn how to make their own project, but also to learn from the other students projects too.

  • It could be altering clothes, copying your favourite pattern or finishing off your tailored jacket or replacing a zip in your favourite cushion.

  • Unfortunately due to the space of our studio we are unable to make or alter curtains or blinds.
