Learn to Sew & make patterns actually fit

Have you ever fancied learning how to use a sewing machine and making your own clothes?

Have you made clothes that don't really fit very well?


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



Celia is an internationally renowned tutor and has even recently been tutoring the wardrobe department at Grenada Studios Coronation Street. 

In November we have three days of workshops available. The first day will be 'getting the most out of your sewing machine', the second will be covering lots of different buttonholes and zip techniques and the last day will be making and fitting a skirt.

In December, there is a two day Palmer Pletsch Fitting course.  We shall be making a blouse and learning how to make it fit using the Palmer Pletsch techniques.




The workshops are just £50 each and this includes tuition, sample fabrics and threads - except the fabric/thread for the skirt & blouse, Morning coffee and homemade biscuits, lunch, afternoon tea and homemade cake.  Workshops will run from 10am to 4-5pm approx.

For those who want to stay over, the rate for 2 nights Dinner, Bed and Breakfast and three workshops is just £240 per person sharing a twin room or £260 in a double room for single occupancy. 

One night dinner, bed and breakfast and two workshops is just £157 sharing a twin or £167 in a double room for single occupancy.

For those staying over there is of course unlimited evening sewing available.

Accommodation is at the Royal Hotel Bridlington which is a four star AA Guest Accommodation situated in the beautiful South Beach area of Bridlington, just over the road to the beach.

Celia is very flexible and so if you can already sew and just want to come along and enjoy free time to make your own project or if you want her expert advice on your own project then she is fine with that and you are most welcome to come along.

So why not come along?  Internet courses such as craftsy are all well and good, but nothing beat hands on experience with a real tutor.
