Phew!!  It’s tiring just reading that list, never mind working your way through it, but you will truly be on your way towards being a Sew-Master General after this course!

There are two options for this workshop; one includes the fabric and one doesn't, so if you have some denim in your stash that you've been yearning to use, then this is your chance! The following is included no matter which option you go for:

  • Sewing pattern
  • Use of a sewing machine
  • Notions & tools
  • Tea, coffee and cake


So the garment can be made in the time allowed and you get the full benefit from each session, we will need you to do some homework in between the sessions. If you are unable to do this at home or don't feel confident enough to do it on your own, then you are welcome to come and use our workshop in between sessions during our regular opening times.

Anyone attending a workshop also receives a whopping 15% discount in the shop on the days of their workshop!*
