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.

Corset AH1Corset AH1
Six Saturdays: 6th & 27th September. 11th & 25th October. 8th & 22nd November with Alex Haighton-Kerr
Kitty Flowers Corsets
After a very successful first workshop I am happy to have the chance to run another, this time with Christmas party, glitz and glamour in mind. Now each person is different so create your very own corset to suit you whether it's for a Christmas, a Hogmany party or just for your own knowledge and achievement. Sewing experience is needed, but as long as you have patience and you can follow a pattern line you will be fine.
This workshop will be run over 6 weeks (dates above). We will go from pattern to finish and everything in between. We can run through ideas you may have and designs you have created in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. These are not waist training corsets and are developed for comfort, shape, fashion and creativity.
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.

Sew Slip Mat

Sew Slip Mat

22.50

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.
