A six week course of sewing lessons at Catkin & Scraps, Ulverston. The course starts on the 4th of June 2024.

This is aimed at improving sewists who are learning how to make garments.

In this course we will be getting to grips with zips. You can either make a mini or midi skirt with invisible side zip, plus a matching belt and zipped pouch OR a unisex zipped tracksuit top using a stable knit such as French Terry or sweatshirting.

The pattern of your choice will be included in the price of the course, but you’ll need to buy the fabric, pre-wash and iron it before the first lesson.

If you can manage to pop into the shop before the class starts to pick up your pattern I can show you which types of fabric would be suitable and we can determine how much you'll need. Be aware that we will be closed on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st of May for a course. Other than that our opening hours are Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat 10am-4pm.

There are a maximum of four spaces so it is worth booking as soon as you know you want to join in to secure your place.

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.

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.
Please make sure when booking that you provide a telephone number and email address so we can get in touch.
