Description

Learn to sew for free and help the patients of Christies as you do!

Instead of the usual Sewing Surgery Social on Wednesday nights (see below), I will be using this session to teach people the basics of using a sewing machine. I will show you how to make a simple bag, which patients of Christie's hospital can use to carry their syringe drivers around with them, a piece of equipment that helps deliver their medication throughout the day. The basic skills you learn for making this bag will give you the confidence to start using your machine and starting the projects you've been dreaming of!

This is an opportunity to get FREE tuition in how to use your sewing machine while being part of a wonderful initiative to provide people in palliative care with a specially handmade item to carry their syringe driver in. In association with Making for Charity.

Refreshments and fabric will be provided, a small number of sewing machines are available to use if you are unable to bring your own (just let me know beforehand). Please bring your own sewing kit (thread/needles/scissors/pins) and sewing machine user manual where possible.

The session runs from 6-9pm, but it is fine to drop in/out between these times. Space is limited so please book your free ticket below and please let me know if you can't make it asap so I can free up the space for someone else.

***The usual Sewing Surgery Social happens every Wednesday between 6 and 9pm, and is a chance for people of any sewing level to drop by and get my help with their sewing projects and techniques, help adjusting clothes, or just to enjoy sewing socially. It is £15 for the full 3 hours, or £10 for 2 hours. More details can be found at my Facebook page.***

For people who feel confident with sewing and who want to help this cause, I will be hosting a sewathon in the new year that will be less focussed on the teaching of basic sewing skills. Watch this space!

I am also running a workshop on how to sew a beautiful advent calendar wall-hanging on Saturday 25th November, see here for more info.
