We are thrilled to have Louise guide you, her years of experience and knowledge, as well as her passion and patient manner, will bring you more confident in your sewing abilities.

Are these sessions for you?

  • you have tried making garments from patterns unsuccessfully
  • unable to decipher what the pattern and instructions are asking you to do
  • unconfident in choosing a size and the fabric for patterns
  • would like to learn basic skills to achieve greater results
  • sew crafts / homewares or quilting but first time trying your hand a dressmaking

What you need to take:

  • The pattern you wish to make
  • Required fabric – if you are struggling, we can help you choose in advance of your class.
  • Matching thread

You will have 10% discount for items purchased for this class from The Wee Fabric Shop

The class will be a relaxed format, where you can freely ask as many questions and for help as you sew along.  With the 5 weeks of sessions we are aiming for you to finish your garment.  You can arrange homework, where you can sew at home inbetween times, to help with progress.  If you do finish your garment before the course finishes you can start on a second garment.  This is not speed sewing, it’s relaxed so you feel under no pressure.  **During the last sessions Louise demonstrated invisible zip insertion, pockets and collars – these were techniques which came up in the class, depending on what you (the other students) are making these techniques will vary and be best suited to your needs.

Skill Level: Confident beginner, you will have been expected to have used a sewing machine, and sewn a few things, if you’ve been to our classes before you should have basic knowledge.  (This is NOT a beginners sewing class.)  If you’re unsure please talk to us, we want to make sure the class is right for you.
