As we move into the autumn, maybe you would like to brush up on your sewing skills with a workshop in our dedicated teaching room at our Yeovil store? Our workshops are running on Saturdays through September, October and November. They run from 10am to 4pm , with tea and coffee included, though you will need to bring your own lunch. These classes all require you to bring your own sewing machine with all its feet and power lead, as well as a basic sewing kit. We have a car park right outside which is free to use while you are with us, and disabled access is available to the teaching room in our platform lift. All these full day workshops cost £45 payable on booking, which you can do in person at our Yeovil store or over the phone on 01935 422631.
Here is a reminder of the classes we are running this autumn:
Sew a Sample Curtain
This is a beginner’s class, though you will need to be familiar with your sewing machine and have basic sewing skills. You will learn how to hem a curtain and how to create curtain headings. You will make up a sample size example curtain – please note you are not able to make a full size curtain in this class due to space limitations. This class is running on Saturday 7th September 2019, so book now and gain the skills you need to upgrade your home decor this autumn.
Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine
Want to get more confident with your machine? Unsure even where to start? This class will help you gain in confidence on your own machine under expert guidance and will cover issues such as tension and stitch length, as well as the function of different feet. This class has been extremely popular and given a real boost to the participants’ sewing. This class is running on 21st September and 16th November 2019.
Learn to Machine Quilt
Machine quilting is the process of joining together layers of fabric, usually with a cushioned layer in between. This gives a decorated effect as well as adding texture to the finished item. This class is suitable for beginners, although you will need some familiarity with your machine and basic sewing skills. This class is running on 5th October 2019 and is almost sold out!
This class is a mystery, what delights will our wonderful teacher Lynn Horniblow come up with? All you need to know is that we will be having fun with a selection from our range of fabulous Christmas fabrics and making a home made decoration you couldn’t buy in the shops. Join us for this class on 2nd November 2019 and you will have time to go home and add to your stash of decorations before the tree goes up!
