8. Learn to Make a Garment Bundle
Learn to Make a Garment Bundle. From learning to sew through to pattern making, to sewing up a garment. Whether you are a beginner to sewing, wanting to understand the make up of garments or are coming back to sewing from a long break. The bundle class will allow you to learn at a steady pace for any garment. I have set bundles of 3 hrs classes, 4 hrs, 5 hrs 6 hrs, 8 hrs or 10 hrs classes depending on the scale of project or what you need the most help with. These classes are 1 to 1 only to allow for a fully bespoke style of class. A single class of 1 hour is not very long to get much completed. The point of this listing is for the bundles. The more complicated the garment the more time it will take to make. Layers and paneling both add time to the construction process. E.G. A dress can take 6 plus hours. A shirt can take 10 plus hours. A jacket can take 20 plus hours. Though you can choose to only do the bits you need help with the most and carry on with elements at home. Bring a readiness to learn and maybe a notebook. You will enjoy a pleasant environment with a patient tutor near Canning Town station. All equipment is provided for your learning experience. You will be learning techniques that align with your abilities and take home all that you complete for reference. If you wish to learn a specific technique, please ask before the class date so I can be prepared for you. As a business for good we collect donations for our Pay It Forward scheme to allow for people unable to afford classes.

10. Introduction to Patchwork
This is a modern take on an old favourite. Patchwork is a traditional technique that uses bits of left over fabric to create quilts or cushions covers but these days it is used for so much more. You will be amazed how colourful, small bits of fabric can come together, up-cycled to create things of beauty. They can also be used to make up skirts, jackets and even accessories such as scarves, collars and jewellery or used to make inserts and patches to mend, giving pops of colour and updating clothing, breathing new life into old favourites . With patchwork recycling bits of old and unused fabric becomes easy and very fashionable. Our experienced seamstress Pat Stevens will be teaching you. What you will learn: This is an Introduction to patchwork course for sewers/ quilters starting out or continuing your journey in patchwork with a machine sewing. In this course you will learn the basics of how to make a patchwork piece that can be used within many other projects. You will ideally need be proficient on a sewing machine.
