Dressmaking Courses & Machine Skills

 Celia Banks from Sew Fundamental will be teaching here at The Royal Bridlington in November & December.

Following requests for workshops and retreats suitable for all levels of ability, we have put together a superb programme for this winter.

We kick off with 'Getting to know/Mastering your machine'. This is a great one for beginners and anyone with a new machine.

Next we move on to essential techniques. Celia will be teaching buttonholes of all descriptions and then zips - again covering various different methods.

The final day is making and fitting a skirt.

Full details of these workshops / retreat can be found on the website http://www.quiltsandwich.co.uk

In December we shall be covering Fearless Overlocking.  If you have an overlocker and get frustrated with it or not quite sure what your overlocker can do or even if you are thinking about purchasing an overlocker ...this is for you.

The next two days are called Fit for Fashion and Celia will be teaching us how to make clothes that really fit using the Palmer Pletsch technique.
