Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm
Cost: £15
Location: Belfast
Making: Cushions

What you need to be able to do
As this is a beginner’s class, I do not expect any particular level of sewing ability. However if you can familiarise yourself with your machine, that would be great. If you can sew a straight line, that would be better. If you’re fairly confident at sewing for the home, but have never done patchwork, you will learn lots. In other words, whatever your ability, come along, have fun, you can learn from scratch or learn better tips and tricks. Please let me know what level you think you are when you apply so I can tailor the class accordingly.
