Sew Anything Class Saturday - Adults and Kids Welcome
Complete beginners welcome!
Come and sew those unfinished projects or start a new project in a friendly and relaxed environment. Our Saturday sewing class is specifically designed to give you 3 hours of uninterrupted sewing time to work on whatever project you choose.
These Sew Anything Classes are the ideal time to learn new techniques and get focused help from our experienced tutor.
We can teach you sewing machine basics and start you on your first project (suggestions below) or help you with any stage of an existing project - be it a bag, soft toy, clothing or a quilt - from designing to planning and finishing!
We can help you with any patchwork technique including foundation piecing, hand or machine applique, quilting, binding and even modern improvised piecing.
Learn to sew your own clothes or to up-cycle and mend existing clothes. We can help you to grade between sizes and make clothes that fit!
Learn to sew soft toys - from the simplest way to cut the pattern to adding gussets and all the tricky, fiddly bits.
