Workshop: 'Oh-Sew-Basic'

We're thrilled to announce details of the very first workshop session booked to take place at our new Made in the Shade HQ at The Barras Centre :)


A beginners sewing class...

...with seamstress extraordinaire, Leah Halliday!

Monday 4th October

6.30pm - 9.30pm

Course fee: £30

Never used a sewing machine before? Or just a bit rusty and keen to get back on that pedal? This class is for you!

During this 3-hour workshop you will learn to use a sewing machine and you'll complete a simple textile project - a pretty cushion cover - as you pick up oodles of new skills! You'll leave with your cushion cover at the end of the class AND you''ll take away the pattern too so you can make even more cushions on your own at home!

Seamstress and dress-maker extraordinaire Leah Halliday will lead this class. She'll teach you how to do all these things...

1. How to thread a machine

2. How to change a needle

3. How to use the presser foot

4. How to fill and load the bobbin

5. How to stitch in lovely straight lines and how to get to grips with back stitching

6. How to adjust stitch length

7. Basic pinning + cutting and ironing techniques

Material included. Basic tools of the trade are provided*. So all you have to do is show up!

*If you have your own sewing machine bring it with you but don’t forget the instruction manual :)
