Sewing afternoon -from beginners to experienced

Caroline has offered to give her time for free to show us how to make some tote bags. One is a plain tote bag, though simple,  is great for those with little skill or who wish to brush up on their skills. The other is a fully lined tote with a difference, not really much more difficult but a little more skill may be required.

If you have a machine please bring it with you.

A small charge will apply approx. £5.00 to cover the cost of the materials.

More about Caroline

After offering a range of courses and workshops now for over four years in the local area of Garsington and Cuddesdon the great news for this autumn finds us moving to a new permanent base at the Boundary, Garsington. This will give the opportunity to expand on courses/workshops and not only will there be the usual Saturday classes but a new evening class and much more to come over the coming months. Any area of sewing not covered by a course or workshop at present will be considered and incorporated it in to the spring term if possible.

All courses offered by myself are created to give you both the chance to gain new skills and confidence while working in a relaxed and friendly environment. A full information sheet on each course is available; numbers for each class are kept low in order for you to have the best support required.

The programme for the autumn term in our new home started in September with the usual monthly Saturday club and has rolled on with the programme outlined below. Although some classes have passed, many of these will be repeated in the spring or summer programme.

    Hmm... how about doing a basic sewing course for single guys to teach them how to sew shirt buttons and may be repair trouser hems or small tears etc....?
