Today a friend and I had a lovely afternoon in a sewing workshop. We’d been wanting to start sewing classes for a while and had been looking at different sewing schools in our area. Pinterest has actually inspired us to want to do a lot of DIY and I’m so glad we decided to go to a workshop at Sew in Brighton! This sewing school started in 2008 and holds about 10-15 classes and workshops every week – their classes include “Learn to use a sewing machine”, “Lampshade making workshop”, “Make your own dress” among many others. So whether you’re a beginner or an experienced sewer, there will be a class for you if you’re interested!
The workshop we went to today was called “Learn to make a bag” and the teacher was lovely – extremely helpful and cheerful. It was a beginner’s course that included learning how to use a sewing machine, making a bag out of a fabric of your choice and taking the bag home with you! Oh – there is also tea and coffee for everyone (who doesn’t love that??). The workshop costs £55 but we actually found a deal in Groupon and managed to do it for £25.
As someone who doesn’t remember the last time she used a sewing machine I can say this class taught me a lot! I made a few mistakes initially but mistakes are good – that’s how you learn. What matters is in the end I had made a bag and had so much fun doing it! (terrible quality picture below but it’s the only one I had with the bag!)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of love,
