Are you keen to get going with one of our patterns but would like a bit of a helping hand? We’ve got just the solution!
Why not take a sewing class at the lovely Village Haberdashery shop in Hampstead, London? They are currently offering classes in both of our patterns - the Tallis collar on the 15th July and the Mortmain dress on the 5th, 12th and 19th August.
The Tallis collar class is perfect if you’re a complete beginner or need a refresher course if you’re machine has been gathering dust for a while… Taught by the brilliant Rachel from House of Pinheiro, the class covers finding your way around a sewing machine, reading a pattern and completing your collar in your choice of fabric. The price includes your pattern and thread and if you want to buy your fabric from the shop you get a 10% discount. Find the details here.
The Mortmain dress class is spread over three evenings, giving you lots of time to perfect techniques including fitting a bodice and waistband, box pleats and inserting an exposed zip. Taught by (another!) Rachel, you can see her lovely version of the Mortmain here. Again, the price includes the pattern, thread and interfacing and you can choose fabric from Annie’s amazing selection! See details here.
Not based in London? We know there are a few places who will be offering classes soon so watch this space!
