What you will learn
Beginners are encouraged to start with a simple project such as a tote style shopping bag before moving onto a simple garment, although Janet is happy to discuss personal projects with each student and advise on this. Students are able to work on a project of their choice and at their own pace and will therefore require a pattern and fabric in line with that.
In fashion garments, the emphasis is focused on fit and finish; therefore a test garment (toile) is made in calico to perfect the fit, before constructing in fashion fabric.
If your preference is to make cushions, curtains and other soft furnishing or craft projects, Janet will discuss this and the needed requirements with you.
What you will need
No need to bring, or even own a sewing machine as quality Janome DKS30 modern sewing machines are provided. Most new students are unsure of what machine to buy so trying out a class machine first is a wise move!
General sewing equipment and haberdashery is available to purchase at the school. Pins, scissors, tape measure, unpick, sewing gauge and thread are generally all that’s needed to start with, in addition to your fabric. Calico is also stocked and advice provided on choice of pattern and size required.
Our venue and facilities
We are ideally situated just minutes from M6, M61 and M65 motorway junctions. Our brand new custom built studio in Farington has excellent spacious ground floor facilities and free car parking. As well as our quality modern Janome sewing machines and overlockers, we have excellent pressing equipment from Philips and raised cutting areas to save your back! Small classes and expert tuition ensure that you will complete your course with confidence.
Weekly class pricing policy
The regular price of a one-day workshop is £80.00. The discounted price of £60.00 a day or £30.00 per half-day session is dependent on students enrolling on a complete block of classes. Missed classes can’t be credited further as they are already heavily subsidised. This helps us to keep classes competitively low.
