“ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS”


If you have always wanted to “sew something” but don’t know where to begin or don’t have a sewing machine – these classes are for you!   If you don't have a sewing machine, don't worry - its FREE to use one of ours for the day.

 

Also a great class to get you going if you have a sewing machine but it is still in its box!!!  Bring yours along and we'll get you on your way.

 

We have Absolute Beginners classes for dressmaking and general sewing leading on to patchwork & quilting. 

 

ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS CLASSES WILL RETURN IN JANUARY 2020
