Intermediate Sewing Machine Workshop

at 67 Terregles Street, Dumfries, DG2 9BD
PRICE : £25.00

Who doesn’t love a bit of bunting........I know I certainly do! So why not come and join me at our bunting making workshop. You’ll get to grips with bias binding and master the art of appliqué.
Mix and match patterns from our stash of thrifted, vintage and new fabrics to create your very own garland. Using the technique of appliqué you can learn how to decorate and personalise your bunting for your home sweet home or for to give as a gift for that special someone! Using some pretty motifs and letters you will learn how to transfer your design onto fabric using different appliqué techniques and double sided interfacing.
At the end of the class you’ll take home a length of handmade fabric bunting.

You will learn how to do all these things...
· How to make bunting
· How to use bias binding
· How to appliqué
· How to use double sided interfacing
· Pinning + cutting & ironing techniques
Material included. Fabric, sewing machine thread, bias binding and double sided interfacing.
Basic tools of the trade are also provided* so all you have to do is show up!
*If you have your own sewing machine bring it with you but don’t forget the instruction manual & some spare machine needles.
Classes are small, maximum class number is 8 guests, to ensure you get the personal tuition you need to help with your project and get the best out of each workshop we host. There is also the chance to chat with the other guests and meet like minded new friends!

PLEASE NOTE: This is an intermediate sewing workshop. If you already know your way around the sewing machine, feel comfortable using it, threading, loading the bobbin, back stitching and your able to sew a straight seam, then this class is for you.

If you have never used a sewing machine before or you've not used one in years and years we recommend you book a place on our Oh Sew Basic beginner's sewing machine workshop in preparation for making bunting.
