You can now extend your thread of knowledge with this sewing workshop for beginners. Join Craig and the rest of the Fashion Box team for this two-hour class offering an introduction to domestic sewing machines.

After getting to grips with threading, you'll also have the opportunity to explore different stitching techniques and seams, all with easy techniques provided by your fashion host.

During the second half of the workshop, we will focus on quilting techniques. You will choose from a selection of fabrics to design and make your pot holder.

RESCHEDULE & REFUND POLICY.

Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.

We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, and leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. So we are very strict with our door closing policy.

Only one reschedule permitted per booking. We do not offer free reschedules or refunds to latecomers, or outside of our 7 day cancellation policy.

AGE RESTRICTIONS:

This workshop is suitable for 14 years and above. All students under the age of 17, must be accompanied by a participating adult.
