So we have done it, our first year and what a great year we have had!
As you may know we have had some changes along the way, we started out in premises in Rawdon, and then recently moved into our new home here at Sunny Bank Mills, quite an achievement I think you will agree in such a short period of time.
We have had some amazing students come to us (most are still with us!) over the last 12 months and we just wanted to share with you some of their fantastic work as well as our events.
So kids, you’ve always fancied becoming the next Stella Mc, learn how to sew, and make your own clothes?!
Now’s your chance…spend two days of your summer hols with us here in our spacious, fabulous sewing studio doing just that.
Over a two day workshop you’ll learn how to use patterns, cut fabric correctly, use a sewing machine and make a beautiful piece of clothing which is all yours to take home!
All fabrics, equipment and sewing machines are provided, you just need to bring a packed lunch and your creative ideas.
For ages 12+
This one day workshop on Sunday 20th August 2017 10am until 4pm is designed to give you all the skills you will need to create this beautiful patchwork cushion.
It’s time to get creative! You’ve done all the parties, run out of new ideas and looking for something a bit different to celebrate your little ones’s birthday?!
School of Sew will organise it all for you, great fun for children age 8-16
Bring your friends, be creative, learn new skills, have loads of fun, plus everyone takes home a gorgeous handmade gift. We have lots of imaginative ideas for you to choose from.
