QTY:

Join us in making either an A-line or pencil skirt in your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information') and leave with a super stylish end result.

We’ll show you how to work with pattern blocks, take you step by step through how to insert a concealed zip and help you achieve a professional finish on your skirt using one of our Janome overlockers.

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.

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.

If the above date is not suitable or sold out and there are no alternative dates showing below, contact us with the workshop name, so we can let you know if a place becomes available or when the next date goes on sale.

If you would like to purchase this workshop as a gift, please contact us with the workshop name and date or go to our Gift a Workshop page.

You will need to bring the following to the workshop, if you want, you can buy on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines and get 10% discount.

1.3m of fabric, please avoid bulky, stretchy or slippery fabrics; light to medium weight woven cotton is ideal.

A 23cm (9") concealed/invisible zip (be careful not to pick up a standard zip).

20cm of fusible interfacing (this can be bought from Bamber Sewing Machines on the day).

Matching thread.

Contact us before the course if your hip circumference measures outside the range 92cm - 122cm so we can ensure there is a pattern block made in your size and so we can advise how much fabric to bring.

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 (230DC) 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 and there will be a break to eat, so please bring along some lunch or you can pop out to Asda located opposite.
