Sew Slip Mat

Sew Slip Mat

19.50

SewSlip has a non-stick top surface which is bonded to cured silicone. The tacky back holds the SewSlip to your machines surface. Simply remove the protective brown sheet, position the hole under your machine needle, and sew! Its that simple!
SewSlip eliminates the drag on your free-motion sewing and quilting projects. Best of all, you don't need to tape SewSlip down to have it stay where you put it.

SewSlip is a generous 12" x 18" with a needle hole predrilled that fits most sewing machine beds. It can be cut with scissors if needed. We suggest storing it rolled up with the brown undersheet in place to keep it clean, but SewSlip is completely washable so will last a lifetime! When the tacky silicone side gets full of lint, threads, and/or cat hair, hold it under a running tap. The water will wash the mess away. Pat dry and you are good to go!

Keep your rotary cutter far away! The sheet is like fabric and will cut easily.

The SewSlip sheet can be used with your fusible projects and will withstand up to 500 degrees F. Your home iron only gets to around 350 degrees F, so it is safe to iron on it.

The SewSlip sheet makes a great palette for inks and paints. Easy clean up and no staining!

Featured in Fabrications, Sew Today and Sewing World magazines.

COURSE DETAILS.
Thank you to all the customers who have attended our classes. I trust you enjoyed the informal atmosphere at our workshops. The room is small so spaces are limited to a maximum of six people per class. This allows our excellent tutors the chance to teach their subject properly. In all classes individual tuition is guaranteed. We want you to discover the joy of sewing. Please note the classroom is located on the first floor of the shop.

Some of the courses include all of the materials which you require and are donated by * sign.

Tea & coffee are included and we suggest you bring a packed lunch. All you need to bring is your complete machine (in working order) and a basic sewing kit. For some specialist courses you will be sent a list of requirements, this allows you the freedom of choice to select colours etc. If you have difficulty bringing your machine we will gladly lend you one.

Remember you can drive down Friars Street before 11.00 and after 16.00 to load & unload your machine.

Tea & Coffee are available from 09.30. Classes start promptly at 10.00.

CorsetCorset
Saturday 8th & 29th March, 12th & 26th April & 10th May with Alex Haighton-Kerr SORRY NOW FULL
Kitty Flowers Corsets
I have been making and designing corsets for almost 10 years, the most important thing about my corsets is that they are high quality and comfortable. Each corset maker has their own method of designing and constructing and I would like to share my skills with you.
Over the five days we will cover Patterns and their placement on fabric, Types of fabric to use, a little history about the corset and the construction of your corset. Throughout the course, depending on your level of sewing, you can make your corset as simple or as complex at you wish.
I will supply you with all the: Bones, Busks, Bias binding, Eyelets & Laces.
You will need to bring:: 2m of cotton (light drill or heavy cotton) for inner lining
1m Lining Fabric (I find quilting cotton is the best as it is soft and strong.) Both available from Pembertons
and 1-2m of Outer Fabric.
The luxury of working from Pembertons is you have the supplies right down stairs. You can bring any fabric you feel may be suitable for the outside and we can see if it will work for you (you need at least 1m).
You may want to stay away from thin, delicate, or large print fabric and get 2m if you have a tartan or a check.
*The corsets I make are not for waist training purposes.

Making trousers is easy, the tricky part can be in the fitting. By making your own pattern some of these problems can be eliminated. First you will draft a regular fit classic trouser from your own measurements and make and fit a toile. Once your toile fits, you will make up the trousers, adding design to the block pattern and fine tune the fitting. You will learn procedures such as zip insertion, pockets and waistbands. Bring fabric, sewing kit and calico for toile plus pencil, ruler, calculator and rubber for pattern drafting. Some people require 3 days so the option of joining one of the dressmaking days is there.
