    Holy pins and needles, Batman! Become your own sewing superhero and overcome the fear of working with that troublesome stretchy fabric. Our experienced dressmaking tutor, Alison Leese, will fortify you with countless tips and tricks for working with knitted fabrics (such as jersey, cotton knit or ponte roma). On the day you’ll construct a top with the sleeve and body cut as one, so no tricky set in sleeves to worry about. You’ll finish the top by adding cuff and hem panels.

    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)!

    You’ll conquer the complicated-looking but super useful overlocker. This is a brilliant workshop to progress on to if you have already attended our Beginners Overlocking workshop, and you’re raring to test out your newfound skills.

    Quick Robin! To the Batwing-mobile!

    As this is not a beginner’s workshop, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops.
