The deep dive class will take place in our shop just around the corner from Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 10 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath overground stations.
In this three hour class you will take a deep dive into pockets! If you've struggled to sew certain pocket types, found it hard to get a professional finish and want to learn how to confidently sew pockets then this is the class for you. This deep dive will help demystify the construction of a variety of pockets and leave you ready to tackle them in your next project!
Our deep dive series are the classes we wish we'd taken when we started our sewing journeys - it would have saved us a lot of unpicking!
