Beginners Sewing

You may have noticed that we are offering more Beginners sewing workshops than ever before and they all approach teaching you to sew in different ways. One exciting new addition is our Learn to Sew workshops run by the tremendously talented Deborah Simms. 

But with all these new options it can be hard to know which one is for you, so we've put together this handy little chart which will hopefully steer you in the right direction.

It's June next week and if you are still slipping on your New Year's resolutions to learn to sew THIS YEAR, let us help, we promise you won't regret it!

Reinvention of an Apron

Ah the humble apron, so useful and yet so overlooked. For me it's one of those things that you never know how much you use it until it's not around and you get flour all over yourself!

Well listen, I know we've had our ever popular Sew your own apron course for some time but we've reinvented it and we think you're going to love it!

Not only can you still make the beautiful, Stepford-wives-esque vintage apron, you can now choose to make a mans apron or an apron for a wee child. Those ones have a pocket as well, so handy!

 We're spoiling you here and we also know that choosing which one to make will be the hardest part of the class!

That's because our top class tutor Alison is an expert at getting even the most unconfident sewer sewing up a storm and creating things that they really didn't think they would ever produce!

So with Fathers day coming up and the summer holidays not far behind you should probably get
yourself a place booked and reap the rewards of being so well organised.

Hand made presents are always more appreciated than shop bought ones. To book on this fabulous course click here
