Learning to sew is a skill highly recommended. A few reasons are:

  1. a) You cannot find anything you like in the shops
  2. b) Nothing fits well
  3. c) Fabric is just awful
  4. d) You can save money
  5. e) You can start you own business or sell to others

Our basic workshop covers the following skills:

  • Ins and outs of a sewing machine
  • Use of an overlocker
  • Using a commercial pattern – placement and securing on fabric
  • Casings for waistlines and drawstrings
  • Zips insertions
  • Bindings
  • Pockets
  • Linings
  • Hemming
  • Adding buttons and buttonholes

Approximately 35 hours will be required for this workshop which is structured for individual attention, so although there might be a group setting, you will receive instructions on an individual basis.

Choice of projects will be provided in the relevant categories as indicated above to teach you the skills necessary to learn the techniques listed.

Projects consist of items such as tote bag, skirts, shorts, tops, pants, pillowslips, pencil cases, cushions etc. tuition, patterns and refreshments are included in the course fees.
