Helping You Learn to Sew!

Workshops

Focussed sessions where you will work on and complete a garment within the lesson time - workshops are great for learning new garment techniques, and fun, relaxing weekends. Great for those tired of mass-produced shop bought garments, or anyone who wants to bring a bit of their own personality to the clothes they wear. Participants must be capable sewers, with recent basic garment making experience.

Construct a Tailors Ham &/or Seam Roll

Every serious dressmaker or tailor needs a tailors ham for their workroom! 


A tailors ham is a firmly stuffed cushion which is used to mould shaped areas of garment construction such as darts. Pressing on a curved form allows a garment better to fit body contours. A tailors sausage or seam roll is used as an aid when pressing sleeves. 

I will have supplies of sawdust and fabric scraps available on the day for stuffing.

$30 per person
