I love seeing my students confidence soar with their sewing skills. This 10 week course is the next step after Level 1 Beginners. if you already know your way around a sewing machine and have the basic skills of hems and seams under your belt then this course is for you. It aims to take it up a notch, focusing on improving your existing skills and learning lots of new ones. And always with lots of designer / maker tips thrown in for good measure! Each class is 2 hours long which allows plenty of time to get stuck in and complete each weeks project. Time tends to fly in when your sewing!
We will cover the following:
Removing fullness with darts, gathers and pleats.
How to insert an invisible zip, sew on a button and make a buttonhole.
Bias binding: My favourite! From shop bought to making your own.
Focus on fabrics, how to sew stretch, sequin, leather....making informed choices when purchasing cloth.
Choosing a pattern for you : Get informed so you get it right.
