Get to grips with the basics of sewing and make something unique for yourself, a friend or a loved one.
Led by Designer, Susie Haigh, this two day workshop is designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to the wonderful world of sewing, equipping you with foundational skills that can be applied to a range of projects. Learn how to use a sewing machine; discover different fabric types and terminology; practice stitches and seams, seam finishes, topstitching, hems, buttonholes, zippers and machine appliqué. Then harness your new found skills to create something special from a selection of mini projects including a tote bag, gadget case, cushion cover, apron, or make-up purse.
