Focus On....Thrify Stitcher
Thrifty Stitcher offer a range of sewing classes for all abilities. Their classes include starting from scratch, using a commercial pattern, making roman blinds, plus they are introducing master classes in specific techniques such as using zips or piping.
They also offer a sewing surgery where you can bring in your own projects and use their facilities, and help to complete it. They also offer mobile cake, coffee and cushions sessions where they will come to a venue of your choice and teach you and a few friends a private class. They even offer children’s classes too.
It’s also worth checking out the tips and tutorials section of their site for projects, book and website recommendations: http://www.thethriftystitcher.co.uk/Tips_and_Tutorials.html. After one of their classes you can also buy a bag of mixed fabric scraps of vintage, recycled and custom made materials perfect for working on your own project at home.
