Sewing Classes

Harriett Chapman Designs: "Sewing classes on Thursday mornings from 10.00 to 12.00. Suitable for all abilities, using appliqué, free hand embroidery and hand stitch to build up images. Later, we will make items such as bags for life, but it is definitely not a garment construction class, more about the decoration. I am also gathering numbers to start a Thursday evening class, it will start at 7.00 until 9.00 and the same price." Venue Unit 13, Pencarreg, Aberaeron Craft Centre

Tuffet Making with Calico Kate

Instruction takes place on Wednesdays from 4.30 for about an hour, by prior booking and purchase of tuffet kit and all fabrics.

Maximum three students at a time! All sewing takes place at your home.

Instructions come with the full kit, so a little reading is necessary before you start and there is a small amount of preparation before the first session.

You will need a sewing machine (for home sewing), rotary cutter, ruler and cutting board, needles, pins and machine sewing thread.

**I do not charge, but love to share what I have learned and love doing; all I ask is that the tuffet kit and all fabrics are purchased from Calico Kate **
