Started your sewing journey but not ready to make the leap into dress making just yet? Our workshop 'Intro to Sewing Part 2' will enable you to continue to build your skills and confidence in sewing.


This class is for complete beginners and for people that haven't used a sewing machine in a while. Come and join us for a series of four evening classes learning to sew with a machine at The Makers' Space, Longbarn Village, Alcester Heath, Alcester, BN49 5JJ


Week 1 Appliquéd Apron.

Everyone needs a good apron, whether its for Crafting, Cooking, Gardening, Cleaning or anything that requires covering your clothes to protect them. This wonderfully durable Apron Features three Pockets, one large one at the front, and two at either side.  It also has fixed cross over straps for an easy over the head fitting.  You can also add applique decoration to your apron should you wish to personalise it.  (Jules has offered the option to make an alternative style with a channel set strap that becomes both the neck strap and back ties for an adjustable more fitted Apron)

(Materials all supplied but if you choose to bring your own you will need)

  • 1.3m of linen (145cm wide)
  • Thread 
  • Form Band, Bias tape or narrow strip of interfacing 60cm 


Week 2 The Arden Bag
The Arden Bag is a proper shopper. A lovely large size to hold all sorts of stuff. Fully lined with both an inside zipped pocket and an outside open pocket to hold all the important things like phone and keys. As part of this workshop you will also insert a full length zip to secure the top of the bag.  You can use our suggested idea of a contrast bag base or make the bag in the same fabric throughout.

    Week 3 Hussif Roll Up Utensil Bag.

    In the 18th & 19th century the Housewife or 'Hussif' was predominantly used by the military as a compact roll up sewing or utensil kit.  Since then this much loved design has been adopted by all as a convenient way to store small items such as pencils, knitting needles, make up brushes even!  It is a wonderful little organiser and can quickly be tidied away.

    You get to keep the patterns for each project so you can make them again and again it in any fabric you like! All fabric and patterns are included in the cost of the workshop so you don't need to bring anything with you.
