Sewing Class – Thursday evenings

The new term for sewing starts on 20th September – Thursday – for ten weeks (there will be a break for a week during October).
We will just be running the sewing on Thursday evenings this term.

IMG_2372 Classes are held Thursday’s 7.00-9.30pm.  

Classes are popular so book early to avoid disappointment.

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 classes 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.
