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 seam finishes! We know how confusing seam finishes can be when you start sewing and how important they are to extend the longevity of your garment. You will leave this class feeling confident to finish your garments with care and a professional finish. If you're looking to take your me-mades to the next level (and feel proud to show off the insides!) then this is the class for you.
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!
WHAT WILL THIS CLASS COVER?
+ How to finish seams with an overlocker
+ How to sew French seams
+ How to sew flat felled seams
+ How to sew bound seams
+ How to know when to topstitch or understitch your seam
+ How to choose the right seam finish for your project
This is a practical class and you will complete a sample of each of the seam finishes!
This class is taught by our hugely talented teacher Kirstie. Kirstie has 6 years of experience as both a sewing teacher and as a pattern cutter and designer. Her focus is to provide a calm teaching space to give people the confidence to explore clothes making in a way that matches their needs. In her own practice she is passionate about rebuilding and repurposing to find new methods to work with what is pre-existing.
