Let's Get Sewing Level 2

Last weekend we held our first Let's Get Sewing Level 2 with the super clever Peggy teaching the ladies how to sew pockets, zips and darts. The ladies had either been on our Level 1 course, which runs through the basics or had a general understanding of sewing already but they wanted to know how to do more advanced elements for garments and furnishings. 

Here are a few photos from the lesson.

Our next Level 2 workshop is on Saturday 20th June 10am-1pm click here for more details.

Our next Level 1 workshop is on Saturday 11th July 10am-1pm click here for more details.

New in this week..

We've had a delivery of fabulous, floaty, fun fabrics this week. Just in time for the beautiful bank holiday weekend, so why not pop down and pick up a metre of two of crepe, lawn or spandex to make the perfect summer dress or blouse, using one of our Sewaholic or Colette patterns.
Crepe £8pm 150cm wide
Crepe £8pm 150cm wide

Cotton Lawn Floral £9pm 145cm wide

Navy Cotton Lawn Owls £9pm 145cm wide

Navy Poly Spandex Parrots £7.50pm

Use one of these lovely fabrics to make any of these Sewaholic (£12) or Colette (£14)  patterns. I think the Parfait dress would be perfect for the festivals happening this weekend in Bristol.
