WEEKLY SEWING & DRESSMAKING
Whether you’re a complete sewing novice; have got as far as buying a sewing machine that’s now gathering dust in a cupboard; or are a more experienced sewer in need of a bit of help with a new project, a few classes can help set you off in the right direction and boost your confidence. Come along and make clothes, accessories, do your own alterations, or whatever takes your fancy!
All MIY Collection sewing patterns and all patterns from both of my books “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking” and “A Beginner’s Guide to Makins Skirts” are available for students to use in classes at no extra cost.
All classes are open to everyone regardless of previous experience.
Remember, you can work on whatever you want at these classes, which could be anything from (and not limited to!):
- learning how to use a sewing machine
- copying a garment you already own
- learning how to use a sewing pattern
- making more challenging garments like coats and jackets
- learning some tailoring basics
- sewing with stretch knit (jersey) fabrics
- making kids and baby clothes
- making accessories such as purses and bags
- learning how to adapt and fit patterns.
You don’t have to stick to the same class each week, you can swap and change times and days (subject to availability).
These classes can be booked one at a time or in blocks of 4 or 10, or paid per class, giving you the freedom to come to as many or as few as you feel you need.
