New Sewing Courses!

Phew! I have just finished updating the Class Schedule, and I have to say I am mighty proud of this one!

There’re Classes for beginners and more advanced Sewers alike, and I have tried to plan in fun projects like the Playsuit Course or Beginners Dressmaking Course which both have three different Patterns to choose from (and they’re all great, I promise!), as well as Project Days including an Introduction to Patchwork Day and the completely awesome and fun T-Shirt Project Day.

You guys who have already been stitching up a storm are also catered for and can choose from the Sew Anything Course– which starts soon!- as well as Lingerie, Corset and Vintage Pattern Courses. I’m almost envious, but I get to be there too, yay!

I also have a Social Media Training for Small Businesses Seminar which I am completely thrilled to be offering. I seem to spend a lot of time spouting off about how important SEO is, why I try to maintain an Editorial Calendar and why everyone with a Small Business should Blog in the first place, as well as blithering on about Internet Marketing and all the many minutiae of running a Small Business in this wondrous Internet age that I thought I would  share all of the bits and bobs I have learnt over the years to help y’all out!

Click here for more information but loosely this seminar will feature group discussion and worksheets plus handouts for future reference and is the perfect next step for your Small Business as you build your Brand and start to create more business through your website, shop and in person! It’s going to be such fun guys, I’m hopping with excitement!!

Places are limited by space so I’d book quick for all of the Courses and Classes.

Happy stitching!

The Bunting Kits will be Christmas themed as we get closer to the Festive Season (I have some amazing Christmas Fabric stashed away, yay!). What a treat to get… you could make the Perfect Pair of Jeans with them or learn to Pattern Cut on my Springtime Skirts Course. I have a few more courses for the new year up my sleeve too, what fun!

Happy stitching!

Have you seen…?

I’ve added some new courses to the Class Schedule! I’m so excited you guys, I can’t tell you!

I have been looking around and checking out what Sewing Courses are about and I have tried to think of some new ideas, or maybe a new way of teaching something and I think I have come up with some cracking ideas. Places are extremely limited in my little Workshop so book quick!

In the next few months you can join Courses making Secretary Blouses and Wiggle Skirts, which would be the perfect Course if you are looking to start Sewing or step up in to making Clothing, a beautiful Vintage style Coat for the adventurous Sewer, a great introduction to Pattern Drafting in the Springtime Skirts Course which will help you draft a Basic Skirt Patten then teach you to make several different Patterns and Skirts all fresh and ready for Spring and the Perfect Jeans Course which, you guessed it!, will help you make the perfect pair of Jeans!

Running alongside the 4 and 6 Week courses are day classes covering UpCycling, Mending and Alterations, Christmas Present making and ReVamping your Pad making Cushions, Patchwork and Quilting and Basic Curtain Making. If you would like to get a taster of the Courses I run, or would like to see if this Sewing craze is for you these Courses are perfect! Book more than one at a time and get a cheeky little discount too.

I am head over heels in love with the Christmas Present making Workshops as I have been hand making my family and loved ones Christmas Presents for years. It’s something that, in this day and age of austerity, fair trade and mass production concerns I think actually makes a difference. One or two beautifully, carefully hand made presents make Christmas special and they don’t have to be generic- why not make Pyjamas for everyone as I did last year? Or maybe a Kitchen set of Apron, Pot Stand and Oven Gloves all beautifully Quilted? Maybe Soft Toys, Bibs or a Hat for a little one, or a Monogrammed Cushion? You could however; choose to make Stocking Fillers- and the Stocking for them to fill!- of Tote Bags, Ties and Bow Ties, Patchwork Coasters, Vintage Head Scarves or Scrunchies, or even Zip Pouches stuffed with their favourite soaps  and more. Each Workshop comes with a set of instructions so you will remember what to do when you get home!

Excited? Me too! Click here to book, and I very much hope to see you soon!

Happy stitching.
