Classes, Workshops & Summer Courses

Weekly Classes:-

If you’ve never done any sewing before, or if you are happy behind your SEWING MACHINE but would also like to meet new friends, why not come along to our Tuesday,  Thursday or Saturday classes. Our small, informal and friendly group will have you creating and having fun along the way no matter what your starting level or age. “RECYCLING, general sewing & beginners pattern-cutting workshop” are all topics we cover. Learn how to recycle, or ‘re-cut’ pre-loved garments from your wardrobe or charity shop and make unique pieces you will love to wear again. Learn how to cut a pattern for yourself or family and friends. Scared of zips? Tremble at the thought of making button holes? Don’t worry. We will go through all the various methods you can use and you’ll soon find yourself wondering what all the fuss was about! You can use our machines while you are in class for free but pattern paper, toile and zips etc. will incur extra, nominal charges.

Morning session -10:00am –1:00pm
Afternoon Session -1:30pm – 4:30pm
