  • WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

    2 metres of 150cm wide fabric of your choice

    If you are new to sewing, please do not use silky or soft, floaty fabrics, you will find these too difficult to sew.

    Sequinned, beaded, glittery, velvet or directional print fabrics are  NOT suitable for this workshop.

    The best fabrics for beginners are cottons, linens, soft wools. If you need assistance, please contact the studio.

    IMPORTANT:

    Your fabric must be no shorter (in width) than 140cm, or the pattern will not fit onto the fabric.

    Unfortunately we can not reschedule or refund people that do not bring the required fabrics for their session.

  • DO I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION BEFORE I ATTEND?

    No, just turn up on the day!.

  • RESCHEDULE & REFUND POLICY

    Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.

    We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people all arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, leaves us with less time to teach, and not completing the workshop. Which in turn, leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. Therefore, we are very strict with our door closing policy.

  • WORKSHOP DURATION

    This is a 2.5 hour workshop. Classes start promptly, so make sure you are on time.

    Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find the studio.

    Doors close 15 minutes after the start time and latecomers will not be admitted.
