Happy New Year!

Are you interested in learning to sew? Got a sewing machine somewhere gathering dust? Well look no further…
I shall be running a beginners sewing workshop in my local village hall on Feb 19th this year and I have 3 places left. The workshop is for adult beginners and will cover 8 different types of seams, 3 ways to insert a zip and 3 buttonholes (depending on your sewing machine). The cost will be £35 per person for the day.
I started teaching an adult sewing course at a local college last year and quickly realised from student feedback that some real ground-work would be useful. So this workshop is aiming towards the complete basics, but with a view to putting these techniques into practice in a garment or soft-furnishing later on. All being well, I aim to host additional workshops for further techniques and general crafting fun later on.
If you’re interested in coming along and starting to learn how to sew, then drop me an email for further information (email address will be somewhere over on the right), or leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send you over further info and equipment requirements.
