Sewing Class – Tuesday & Thursday evenings

The sewing course has finished now for the year, but will begin again in the New Year.
Tuesday 30th January and Thursday 1st February
Keep an eye on the website for more details.


Our lovely sewing tutor will be back in the New Year again to teach you the delights of sewing, pattern altering and much more.
Classes are held Tuesdays and Thursday’s 7.00-9.30pm.  Classes are popular so book early to avoid disappointment.

The Full eight week course is £160 (If paid in three instalments). If paid in advance the course costs £140, i.e. one class free. To secure your place you need to pay a deposit of £20 which is deducted from the total cost but is not refundable if you cancel.

The class is very relaxed and sociable, you work on your own project suitable for your level and learn the foundation of sewing, and pattern alterations. Students have made bags, cushions, window blinds, tops, skirts and dresses and more.  We have lots of equipment and spare fabrics and threads, which can be used for embroidery and appliqué, but you should bring all the materials for your own project. We have a machine that can be used by all the students and I encourage people to bring their own machine so they become familiar with it, this can be stored at the gallery during the term.

All the class are very friendly and we always have cake, biscuits and fruit with lots of tea to keep us going through the evening, if you should need any further information don’t hesitate to contact me.
