Description

A 4 week course designed for beginner sewists who know how to use a machine but haven’t yet taken the step into the wonderful world of garment making. Over 4 weeks we’ll look at: - How to approach and understand patterns in this modern and often confusing age of PDF's and A0 patterns - Terminology and what all those little marks on the pattern mean - Measurements and how to choose the right size - Appropriate fabric choices for your pattern - Pressing - why it isn't just ironing - Cutting layouts & cutting methods - Sewing a practice garment following a simple sewing pattern. In this instance, the Skipper Top by Matchy Matchy Sewing Club; Claire's current favourite pattern company - And more! The aim of this course is to give you the confidence to get out there and make yourself some garments this year Tuesday evenings 18:00 until 20:30 over 4 weeks. July 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th. £125 for the 4 weeks, some homework may be required!! Price does not include the pattern, printing of the pattern if required, fabric, and any notions such as thread if a special colour is required - some basic coloured threads will be available. We provide tuition, sewing machines and accessories, cutting & measuring tools, pins/clips, and a selection of threads. Whilst this class is aimed at beginner sewists you must know the basics of using a sewing machine and be capable of sewing a straight stitch in a straight(ish) line. If you need to learn this first we recommend our Learn to Drive a Sewing Machine class.
