  • You will need to provide your own fabric – in two contrasting or complementary colours, both medium weight (e.g. a thin denim style fabric and a medium weight soft furnishing cotton or cotton drill would work well) You will need to supply 2.5m of each fabric and bring your own sewing resources to the course if you wish (i.e. your own shears etc)
  • This course is suitable for improvers who already possess basic sewing skills and can use different feet on a sewing machine confidently. You will need to have used a commercial pattern successfully before. Basic sewing skills and how to use a sewing machine are essential
