Knowle Village Hall, Solihull
Duration – 3.5 hours
This workshop is suitable for children with basic machine skills – they need to have either been on a parent/child sewing workshop before or have used a sewing machine before. There will only be a quick refresher of the machine at the beginning, not full tuition. If you need a beginners workshop or are less confident, there is one suitable for beginners on the same date but in the morning (see here).

“A lot of people are daunted at the prospect of inserting a zip. This is a great class to have a practice inserting a standard zipper and then put those skills into practice by making a gorgeous zipped pouch. Choose from a whole host of lovely fabrics. This would make a fantastic project to make for gifts, or even just yourself!! How about making one for your teacher and fill it with useful stationery as an end of term thank you gift?!”
