Did you know?

Fashion follows economic conditions. In the 1930s and 1940s, after the stock market crash and during war time, garments were utilitarian and constructed to save material. In the 1950s, during the economic boom, crinolines, poodle skirts, sweaters and other more expensive items became popular. In the 1980s when the economy was once again booming, big garments were once again in fashion.

Brilliant workshop! Rachel has been lovely and patient ! Perfect to start learning to saw and being proud to wear your "creation" :) We were a group of 4 people and Rachel gave attention to each of us. No time for frustration, just enjoyed seeing the skirt building up weeks after weeks !

If you are looking for a course where you learn by doing, this will be perfect. Rachel explains step by step everything as you go along, taking time to make sure everyone follows. The course is well designed where after 4 weeks (12hrs) you end up with a tote bag, skirt and lots of practical knowledge. Highly recommend this course to anyone!

Rachel was extremely patient and helpful! Definitely an experience worth trying out as while I may not be the best sewing maestro, the vibe of the class, chat and perfectly imperfect skirt made it all worth it. Highly recommend this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and can't wait for the weather so I can show off my skirt. Rachel's enthusiasm is contagious and she has a lovely way of encouraging you to have a go, enjoy and not worry too much. Rachel spends lots of time with each person so the pace, advice and tips are tailored to each person. I would really recommend this course to anyone whether you are a sewing zero or just looking to pick up some confidence. I can't wait to now move on to dresses!!

Zero to Sewing Hero - Make a skirt by Craft My Day LTD - crafts in London

About your host, Craft My Day LTD

Rachel - Owner and Founder of 'Craft My Day' ​Since completing her degree in ‘Costume and Technical effects for the performing arts’ at London College of Fashion in 2001, Rachel worked freelance in the film and events industries for many years before taking a break to be at home with her three children whilst they were small.

She began teaching at a private sewing studio, alongside freelance work and grew to love the rewarding nature of teaching.

​'I can never seem to get enough of learning new skills, which I love to share…'

In 2016 Rachel decided to start up her own Craft studio and began to work with other local artists to create a unique space for people to come and learn a variety of crafts in a fun and relaxed setting. ​ Her passion for textiles and design began during school when she found her own teacher a real inspiration. 'She developed my creativity but also gave me confidence for life. I aspire to recreate that experience, and inspire others to start their own creative journeys.' ​ Rachel qualified as Powertex trainer in 2016 and is also really excited to share this fantastic product.

Rachel believes that all people are creative and with a bit of patience and encouragement can be taught ways to express that innate ability and get a real sense of satisfaction and enjoyment.
