What happens in this class?

We’ve developed this course to take you from being a sewing novice to making your own useful, comfy and casual items of clothing. These gender neutral items mean anyone can begin to create their own comfortable wardrobe.

We will be starting with a loose fitted pair of trousers or shorts, these could be pyjamas or for lounging around in, or smarter trousers with an elasticated waist. You’ll learn how to measure your body, (optional buttonholes & pockets if you are more of an advanced beginner), casings, hemming and more.

Then we’ll take you through sewing stretch materials and…

An absolutely thrilling experience! Proof that it really is never too late to learn new skills. I made two professional looking items one slinky blouse and a pair of loose fitting summery/ floral pants. Jaime was so kind warm and friendly and showed infinite patience and made the whole experience so positive. The group was small (4-5) and Covid friendly with mask & social distancing. Everyone was kind and helpful. A really terrific course very well resourced. I thoroughly enjoyed it & recommend this sewing programme especially if you are a complete beginner.

Tracey our teacher was really informative and I learnt a lot. It was fun too with like minded people keen to learn. The class sizes here are never more than 6 (4 in our class) which means that you get all the attention that you need. Which is great whether you’re a beginner, improver or experienced. She makes sure that the task meets your experience and challenges you a little! Highly recommended.

I learned to make a pair of lounging-about trousers which I now wear all the time at home, and a Raglan-sleeved, stretch-fabric sweater which I've worn every day to work, since. I have shown it off to work-mates and they have been astounded and amazed at my "talent" although I have been at pains to point out that my teacher (Jaime) was the reason it worked at all: informative, friendly, supportive, ever-ready to step in to avert (my own self-made) disasters, all the good things. The venue was very cool too. I aim to return and do workshops. I cannot praise Jaime and Tracey highly enough. Do it. It's extremely rewarding, good fun, and you share your time with some seriously wonderful fellow-travellers!
