11 July 9h30-12h30 – Intro to the Overlocker
A short workshop to help you get the best from your overlocker. We will help you understand what your overlocker can do; teach you how to thread it up using 3 and 4 threads; how to adjust the stitches so it’s perfect for the fabrics you are threading and help you to be more confident with your overlocker. We have 2 overlockers available to hire (£10 additional charge) otherwise you should bring your own along with its accessories and manual if available.

11 July 13h00-16h00 Sewing with Tricky Fabrics
Learn how to deal with tricky and unusual fabrics in your sewing projects. Whether it’s dressmaking or patchwork, we will explore a range of different fabrics including chiffon, silk, jersey, fleece, fur, wool, satin and lycra and show you the ideal way to prepare them before you start sewing, how to set up your machine using the correct needle and why it matters and explain and demonstrate when and how interfacings should be used with the fabrics.

Mystery Quilt Block Series with Louise

Begin your journey into Patchwork & Quilting by producing a single quilted block that can be the start of a beautiful quilt. You will cut and piece together a selection of coordinating fabrics and quilt as you go to have a fine looking 12" quilted block. You can then repeat the process or join us at the Mystery Quilt Block classes throughout the year to have a variety of quilted blocks.

Includes materials, bring a basic sewing kit that includes sharp scissors, a quick un-pick, pins, hand sewing needles and a tape measure.
