Maria loves that this workshop provides a relaxed & friendly environment to have a go at sewing!

Skill Level: Beginner or Improver

If you are a beginner wishing to learn the basics of sewing or if you would simply like to refresh old skills these 3 hour workshops are designed to cover a variety of basic machine and hand sewing skills.

The aim of these workshops is for you to have fun making something decorative to take home whilst gaining confidence in using a sewing machine and learning or developing the sewing skills that you most want to focus on.

You can attend these workshops as a one-off or if you are looking to build up your confidence and basic skill set we suggest that you attend 3 workshops.

Whether you choose to attend one or more we will help you to plan your workshop/s so that you get to try all the techniques that you are keen to learn, hone the skills that will be most useful to you and succeed in making the item/s you wish to make.

You get to choose your ‘make’ from our suggested projects below and we provide the tuition, patterns & all the materials you will require.

Workshop One – Patchwork Cushion or Bunting

Make a patchwork cushion using 8 triangle patches and a simple envelope back (you’ll be amazed how many variations in pattern you can make) OR make a short string of bunting & get chance to practise straight seams, machine appliqué and sewing with bias binding.

Workshop Three – Zipped Purse or Mug Rugs (new for 2015)
This zipped purse project will give you chance to try out 2 methods for inserting a zip.

The mug rugs are a great way to work through all the methods you use when making a patchwork quilt in a 3 hour coaster project.
