What you will do

2 hour class

Daytime

Appliqué sounds like a fancy word, but all it really means is sewing a smaller piece of fabric onto a larger one! (Now maybe I've made it sound too simple...) Once you know how to do it effectively you can create amazing designs on anything, I promise you'll use it time and time again! We'll show you the classic way of sewing your appliques on with zig-zag stitch, as well as reverse applique and how to do free machine embroidery. This is a fantastic way of sewing, you can literally draw with the sewing machine.

You can make a sampler to practice all the different techniques, great for students who want to try something new and add into their portfolio, or if you want to make something out of your picture we've got stuffing and everything you need to make it into a beautiful cushion.

Did you know?

We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric you just make sure it is big enough for 2 sides of your cushion. Lightweight or mediumweight wovens are ideal. Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices. If you would like to practice sewing on your own machine please feel free to bring it along.

About your host, Make Mee Studio

Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.

Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!

Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
