Learn To Sew
There are so many ways to learn to sew, I was taught at school and have an old fashioned O level and A level in Needlework and Dress, and more recently achieved a Distinction upon completing a City and Guilds in Fashion, level 3. (see here)
Many people are self taught these days, blogs and You Tube can be fabulous for picking up tricks and tips. There are websites like Craftsy too, who offer free classes and paid for classes all online. Sometimes though what you really need is a face to face experience, there are several businesses around the UK who run regular workshops and classes, and more springing up all the time as demand grows.
I teach classes at Ministry of Craft in Manchester, a lively, friendly venue with loads of different classes on offer, from beginners right through to the more experienced.
The classes I teach include:
Clone Your Closet
Sew Your Own Kimono Style Jacket or Top
Stretch Yourself: Sewing a Weekend Doris Dress or Sweater
Pattern Making: Made To Measure Bodice and Sleeve
Fit and Flare Dress
I now offer one to one sewing classes at my studio in Stockport. Whatever level you are at, complete beginner, advanced beginner, or wanting to develop your skills, together we can come up with a plan perfect for you.
