We provide all the equipment, including sewing machines, so you can just come along and get started, all refreshments and some materials are included in the price (please check course details for more information). We only book 6 people on each workshop (with the exception of knitting & crochet) so you receive plenty of help in a small group.
If you wish to bring your own sewing machine along to the workshop it must be under 2 years old with a warranty or it should be PAT tested (certificate will need to be produced).
A small amount of haberdashery and fabric is available to buy at the workshop, for further enquiries please email me.
