Well, January is more than half over and it’s not too long til payday now, so here’s the perfect opportunity to shrug off those winter blues and get sewing! We have two new sessions for sewing enthusiasts, those with some experience and those with virtually none.
First off we are welcoming newcomers to the sewing world to come in and have a two hour session in the Getting to Know Your Machine class. Did you get a (new) machine for Christmas, and you’re not quite sure how to get going? Have you been inspired by the likes of the Great British Sewing Bee and want to get cracking with your first ever makes? Maybe you haven’t touched a machine in years, but you are keen to get back in the sewing saddle. If so, this is the class for you. Taking place from 11am – 2pm on Saturday 15th February 2014, the session costs £40.00 and is suitable for all ages from eight up. Bring along your machine and we’ll have you happy and confident, and letting your sewing skills loose on the world in no time.
And for those that have already got their sewing groove on but seem to be stumbling on certain things, we have the weekly Sewing Club. Kicking off from Thursday 23rd January 2014, the drop in sessions take place from 10am – 1pm, and it’s the perfect place to bring your machine and your current sewing gripe and see if we can help you out. Putting in zips, undertaking button holes and lots of other techniques will be demonstrated every week, so that you can gradually start to build up your machining skills. The cost is £10.00 per person, and you can stay for an hour, or stick around for the whole session and chat to the other sewing fans, and share your troubles and advice.
Sally from The Sewing Machine will be running both the course and the drop in club, so whatever your sewing skills are, you can join us and learn plenty of useful new stuff. For more information or to book a place on the class, give us a ring or call into the shop.
