Applied Craft Workshops

Is your sewing machine gathering dust in a cupboard or is it still new sitting in its box waiting for someone to unwrap it? Perhaps you are hoping for a new sewing machine for your birthday or Christmas? No matter if you have never switched a machine on or have not sewn since school, this workshop is for you, helping build confidence whilst learning essential skills to practice on projects at home.

In this class you will be guided through the basics of your sewing machine, how to hem, add zips and topstitch. You will learn how to draft a pattern, various techniques for cutting fabric and also constructing your projects. Within this course you will make a lined tote bag, zippered pouch, cushion cover and time pending, some bunting too.

Classes are small so you get plenty of hands-on tutition from tutor, Rebecca Barbour, and learn how to sew in a friendly and easy-going environment.  You'll be amazed at what you can achieve in such a short time!

Cost of weekend course:  £110.  Includes tea/coffee and ALL materials (though you are welcome to bring your own if you have some you're keen to use!).  Bring a packed lunch and your sewing machine. NB. We can provide a machine if you don't have one - let us know.

To request a booking form or if you have queries, please email us or tel 01381 600354.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is also running on 23rd & 24th February.  There is also an Improvers Sewing Weekend on 14th & 15th September, should you wish to progress your skills.  Rebecca will also run an Introduction to Free Motion Embroidery Workshop ('drawing' with your sewing machine!) on Sat 2nd November and Christmas Decoration Workshop on Sun 3rd November.
