Event description
Join me at my JERSEY SKILLS workshop to learn all about buying, cutting, stitching and working with stretch fabrics.

About this event

So many of our clothes are made from stretch fabrics but as dressmakers we can be nervous of using them. This workshop is all about gaining confidence with stretch fabrics by exploring some of the seams, hems and finishes which work well on stretch knits.

Who is this class for:

This workshop is a skills based workshop for those who would like to improve their skills using jersey and stretch fabrics.

What you will learn:

During the workshop you will create a range of seam, hem and decorative edges using a conventional sewing machine and an overlocker including:

  • working with stretch stitches on the conventional machine
  • using twin needles
  • creating lettuce leaf edging
  • creating flat seams
  • creating a jersey binding
  • creating hem finishes

Materials & equipment:

All materials will be provided during the workshops.

Sewing machines are available but if you would like to get to know your own sewing machine a little better please feel free to bring your own.

2021 COVID safety precautions. PLEASE READ YHE SAFETY DOCUMENT BELOW.

15th MARCH 2021

COVID Safety Precautions

Updated 15.3.21. You will be updated if any changes become necessary.

I’m delighted to be able to offer some face-to-face classes again but please note the following safety systems and precautions will be in operation. There will now only be FOUR participants at each session enabling you to have a dedicated table each to work on. The overlocker and ironing board will be set as far away from your work stations as possible.

What I will do:

Before your arrival I will have anti – baced all of the surfaces, the iron, the overlocker, sewing machines, the equipment where possible and door handles.

During the session anti-bac spray and sanitiser will be available.

Any Government advise concerning wearing masks indoors and letting fresh air in will be adhered to be participants and myself during the session.

I will be circulating the room during the session but will not touch anything useless I get your consent and would sanitise before doing so.

I will provide a rubbish bag for anything you don’t want to take home and dispose of it after the session.

What you need to do:

1: Please enter Stanpit Village Hall by the SIDE door (not the front door). The Maberley Room can be found on the ground floor and the Harbour Room in on the first floor.

2: Please sanitise your hands on entering the room using the sanitiser station provided.

3: Please use the toilet on the first floor adjacent to the Harbour Room and avoid queuing and passing on the stairs.

4: Please bring as much of your own equipment as you can. I will have my kit bag with me and there will be anti bac available should you need to borrow anything.

5: If you would like to use one of my machines PLEASE BOOK IT WITH ME IN ADVANCE OF THE SESSION. It will be sanitised for you and ready to use.

6: Please bring a face covering to wear during the session if the Government guidelines state we should still be wearing masks indoors .

7: Please bring your own refreshments and drinks.

I’m sorry it’s a long list but I want you to be confident that enough safety precautions are in place to enable you to return to class. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact me at nellybeadesigns@gmail.com
