The workshop will take place in our shop just around the corner from Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 5 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath Overground stations.
In this class you will sew a pair of custom-fit jeans in a two day intensive class, with a focus on fit and professional looking construction. You will be using our brand new Everyday Jeans pattern to sew a pair of high waisted, straight leg, non stretch jeans. The pattern will be posted to you prior to the class so you can make the necessary preparations.
Our Everyday Jeans pattern is available in UK size 6-34. Please get in contact if you're outside of this size range and would like to take the class.
WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?
This workshop is suitable for an intermediate or confident beginner sewist who is excited to make jeans, but needs a little encouraging hand holding and fitting advice. You should be comfortable using a sewing machine and sewing patterns.
+ The New Craft House Everyday Jeans pattern
+ Jeans zippers - we will have blue available. If you have a different coloured denim, please bring a matching 7 inch metal jeans zipper
+ Jeans rivets and buttons
+ All of the tools needed to make and finish your jeans professionally
+ Sweet treats and drinks throughout both days
There will be a one hour lunch break during both days. You will need to leave the studio during this time to give the teacher a lunch break. We are 1 minute's walk from Broadway Market which is packed with amazing places to eat and a food market. Our fabric shop is a 3 minute walk away and open on Saturdays for fabric shopping!
STUDENTS NEED TO BRING:
+ Your pre-cut and basted jeans. For this you will need 2-3 metres of non-stretch denim. Must be pre-washed and pressed (should bring extra in case we need to make fit adjustments to pattern)
+ 0.5 metre fusible interfacing
+ 1/2 metre cotton lining
+ 2x spool topstitching thread
+ 1 spool of regular polyester thread (ie. Mettler or Gutermann)
+ You are free to bring your own sewing machine or you can use one of our Pfaff Quilt Ambition 630 sewing machines we have in our studio
In order to make the most out of the time spent in the workshop you'll want to come to class on Saturday with your pattern pieces cut and basted. Need help? We'll be on hand via email to help you.

WHAT DO PAST STUDENTS SAY?
"I cannot believe that I actually left the workshop, as promised, with a perfect fitting pair of jeans. The two teachers were amazing and with endless patience for a student as needy as I am. Honestly, it was my birthday weekend and there could not have been a better way to have spent it. Thank you"
