Happy New Year!

It’s New Year’s Day, and a lot of us like to make resolutions for the year forward. Maybe yours are traditional, like exercising more, going on a diet or stopping smoking, or maybe you’re thinking of making a sewing resolution?

If you are planning on conquering a technique, you may find a workshop is just what you need. Here are some you might like….

If you’ve made a few bags or pouches, or even a quilt or two, inevitably you’ll want to try making a skirt or a dress. There are lots of classes out there for making an A Line Skirt, or easy patterns and books if you fancy trying it out by yourself.

How to use a serger / overlocker
If you’ve made a couple of garments up to now, you may find the idea of using an overlocker intimidating, so maybe 2016 is the year to conquer the fear of the machine that seems to be covered in spools of thread? These courses will help it seem less intimidating and improve the finish of your garment seams.
