Learn useful sewing skills to help you extend the life of your clothing,  it’s good for the planet and good for your pocket!

Button come off your shirt? Hem come unstitched? Hole in your jeans? In this 3 hour session Ginny will introduce you to some fun ways to tackle those mending jobs. You will have an opportunity to create samples of patching, free-motion darning on the sewing machine and simple hand repairs.

All materials are included but you are welcome to bring along your own items for repairs advice and inspiration. Please bring your sewing machine or advise at booking if you would like to reserve one of ours.

Ginny trained as a costume maker in the 1980’s and has been sewing ever since. She is passionate about reuse and repair and co-ran a business from 2001-2007 designing and making upcycled textiles for the retail market. She is one half of Alice and Ginny and has been working as a sewing and craft tutor since 2007. She has co-written 3 sewing books and enjoys encouraging others on their creative journeys.
