Easy and simple fixes

5 hours

Description

Altering and Mending clothes is so important - for our uniquely shaped bodies, for growing families, for sustainability and often, for the simple joy of making do! 

Come and join alteration superstar Jenny, to learn simple and basic mends and alterations.  

Bring your own clothes that might need a hem taken up, a seam fixed, a zipper replaced, taken in, or out.  Or those baggy legged jeans transformed to skinny jeans!

** Please be mindful that this is a starter class, so basic, simple and easy projects will need to be brought in.  I'm afraid, we'll have to save wedding dress and jeans taking in or out for another day.  Jean hems and leg narrowing is ok. 

Skill level: You will need to know how to thread and run your sewing machine and have a good grasp of sewing with seam allowances and the construction of a garment. If you have done a beginner or next step class with me, this class is for you!

What happens in our 5 hours:

  • We will take a look at your garments, work out the best way forward and then take it step by step to get it right.
  • We'll learn from each others alterations too. 
  • We will focus on learning new skills. 

Dates Available:

  • Saturday 21 August - 10am to 3pm
