QTY:

Holy pins and needles, Batman! Become your own sewing superhero and overcome the fear of working with that troublesome stretchy fabric. We'll give you tips and tricks for working with knitted fabrics (such as jersey, cotton knit or ponte roma).

You’ll construct a top, in your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information') 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.

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 Overlocking for Beginners 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.

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 you order fabric from our online fabric shop, it will be waiting for you in the classroom on the day of the workshop or you can buy on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines range of fabrics and get 10% discount.

You will need 2m of 150cm wide medium-weight moderate stretch / knit fabric like jersey, cotton knit, ponte roma.

Matching sewing thread.

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