A six week course of sewing lessons at Catkin & Scraps, Ulverston. The course starts on the 22nd of February 2024 and takes place on Thursdays 7pm-9pm.

This is aimed at improving sewists who would like to learn more about how to make garments.

There are a maximum of four spaces.

Each week you will have a two-hour lesson in our Making Space, with full use of our Janome computerised sewing machines and overlockers. Tea and coffee is available and there is a changing room to try on your makes.

In this course you can either make the Sew Liberated 'Hinterland Dress', a button front dress with darts, a gathered skirt, in-seam pockets and set-in sleeves OR the Wardrobe By Me 'Pikes Vest', a men's lined vest with patch pockets, buttons, darts and facings. 

The pattern of your choice will be included in the price of the course. You’ll need to pick it up from the shop, buy the fabric, pre-wash and iron it before the first lesson. For the Hinterland dress, choose a light-medium weight woven fabric with a bit of drape such as cotton chambray, ikats, needlecord, crossweaves or lightweight linen. For the Pike's Vest choose a medium weight woven fabric such as corduroy, washed linen, lighter canvas types, denim or wool. You'll also need a lining fabric.

Basic sewing supplies are available to use, but we do advise to bring your own kit if you have one so you don't have to wait to use the communal ones.

The workshop is fairly accessible, but if you have any special requirements as far as access or seating goes please do get in touch and we'll see what we can do.

You can book your place here or in person at the shop.

We only run these workshops if enough places are filled. If you change your mind or circumstances mean that you can no longer take part, please let us know as soon as possible. You can cancel your booking up to two weeks before the class is due to start, after that we will only refund you if we are able to fill your place.
