  • adjusting your pattern for a better fit

  • how to cut your fabric

  • creating seams and hems

  • creating darts and pockets

  • how to make buttonholes
  • how to create a lovely neckline
  • and much more!

You will need to be able to use a sewing machine, if you need to learn then you could sign up for the Absolute Beginners Sewing Class first.

Sewing patterns, use of all equipment and as much tea and coffee as you can drink are all included. You will just need to provide your own fabric and thread. More details will follow once you have booked your place.
