That’s right, you can now sew every Saturday at MIY Workshop. There are two sewing and dressmaking classes at 10am to 12 and 12-2pm every Saturday from 11th June.
Who are sewing classes for?
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!
What can I make at sewing classes?
Bring along your own pattern, a favourite garment to copy or learn how to do your own alterations.
All MIY Collection sewing patterns and all patterns from Wendy’s bestselling book “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking” are also available for students to use in classes at no extra cost.
You can make clothes for yourself and your family, accessories such as bags and purses or cushions, curtains and other home furnishings.
How much do the sewing classes cost? How many do I have to book?
These classes can be booked 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.
