QTY:

Fed up of paying someone else to take up your clothes?

Learn to sew two different types of hem (a ‘turn under’ and ‘invisible’), create darts and make your own alterations while saving money at the same time. Practise hems and altering lengths on a trouser leg and then learn how to alter the width of shirts, tops and dresses by adding darts (using a practise fabric to sew darts).

You’ll discover the secrets of how to take perfect measurements, use common and specialist machine stitches and pick up some tricks of the trade from our seasoned alterations professional Sam Moylan. Leave with the sewing techniques to alter and finish your existing wardrobe and any new additions!

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

Based at Bamber Sewing Machines, Ministry of Craft customers get 10% discount on the wide range of fabrics, haberdashery and sewing patterns and there are various discounts available on their sewing machines and overlockers.
