About Improvers Sewing Course

Wednesdays from 5th to 26th June

If you've recently learned to sew and are keen to get more practice, then this Improvers sewing course will give you further lovely craft projects to make.

This is a 4-week course. You'll be able to build on the skills learned on any of the Beginners courses, and gain further confidence at cutting fabric, and using a sewing machine. There are new ease projects to sew or you can also choose to repeat any of the projects you made in the earlier course if you'd like to improve on your first attempt. Perhaps you'd like to try it in a different size? For example the make-up bag can be made bigger for your holiday toiletries, or use the tote bag technique to make bottle gift bags.

Who is this aimed at?
Improvers: those who've completed any of the Beginners courses and would like to continue to practice sewing and making small craft items.

What will I learn?
>practice cutting fabric and using simple patterns.
>how to neaten up your sewing
>improve your sewing speed and confidence
>Lots more tips for measuring, cutting and sewing your projects
>how to use other materials such as interfacing and wadding

You'll have the opportunity to try the other projects offered in the 4-week Beginners course, such as the tote bag, i-pad cover and make-up bag, as well as some new projects such as a patchwork cushion or a plain cushion with a zip. You can also have another go at your original project if you'd like to improve on your first attempt.

Projects. Choose four from the following list:

>lined and reversible tote bag, (or try the bottle gift bag this time)
>tablet or I-pad cover
>zipped make-up bag
>patchwork cushion (or plain cushion with a zip)
>a fabric basket - useful for keeping your sewing knick-knacks
>sewing machine cover to keep your machine dust free.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Improvers Sewing Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
