Course Details

If you have been inspired by TV's "Sewing Bee" or find that shopping for clothes is Mission Impossible – this could be the course for you.  No previous experience is required – just enthusiasm.  You will be taken through your chosen project step by step.  Learn how to make a simple garment, use and alter a commercial pattern and all the techniques required.  Work at your own pace and have fun along the way.
