Dressmaking and pattern cutting for adults.
I have been teaching fashion related subjects in adult education since 2006. I have the following City & Guilds qualifications:
Level 2 Soft Furnishings & Additional Soft Furnishings
Level 2 Tailoring
Level 2 Lingerie
Level 2 Corsetry
Level 3 Certificate Fashion
Level 3 Diploma Fashion
as well as Level 2 & 3 Certificate teaching qualifications in the Lifelong Learning Sector. I sew everyday for myself & two daughters as well as friends.
Sunday sewing group is an informal meeting of sewists. All levels of experience are welcome. We meet one Sunday a month in the Malt House in Alveston, Stratford upon Avon. During a 6 hour session we sew, chat, drink copious amounts of tea and enjoy a home made lunch. I am on hand to assist with your projects, be they sewing or pattern cutting – or both! There is no formal teaching, just a group of sewists who assist and inform each other.
We start at 10am and continue to 4pm. This means you get loads of time to get stuck into your project. Tea and coffee are included in the price and are provided throughout the day. Sewists bring their own machines etc. Lunches are an optional extra at £5 a head, speciality diets can be catered for.
The group is limited to 6 per session, ensuring maximum contact and input from me. Cost for the 6 hour session is £35, with £20 deposit required on confirmation of the booking. If you cannot attend for the full day, an hourly rate of £8/hour applies.
Topics covered in the classes include:
- pattern cutting
- bra making
- soft furnishings
- bag making.

Bookings are now open for Sunday 28 January 2018 and 18 February 2018.
