    Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, you’ll find like-minded classmates; expert tutors and all the fabrics, trims, patterns and sewing tools you could wish for (plus sewing machines and overlockers for those wishing to invest heavier)!

    Start by using to a card pattern to cut your fabric on the bias. To get a truly professional finish master how to use an overlocker to get those perfectly finished edges and then finish your knickers by learning the tricky skill of sewing on an elasticated trim.

    You will need 50cm of fabric (or a fat quarter), please avoid bulky, stretchy or slippery fabrics; light to medium weight woven cotton is ideal.

    Matching sewing thread.

    Contact us before the course if your size outside the range 8-18 so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size.

    This workshop is part of a Sew Social day, there may be a short wait if the tutor needs to demonstrate a technique required for a different garment. It is, however, a great opportunity to pick up additional skills and chat about what others are doing.

    Our sponsors, Janome, supply computerised sewing machines (CLX301) and where required overlockers (6234XL). Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring in your own machines.

    Tea and coffee will be available at the workshop.
