Zips and Buttons
Can you sew a basic seam, but want to be able to do more? Have you ever been put off doing a project because it you need to put in a zip or add some buttonholes? Or wondered if the other 99 stitches on your machine are of any use to you? Then this is the workshop for you! Over the day you will learn different methods of putting in a zip, running up a quick buttonhole on the sewing machine and even sewing buttons on using the machine. We will endeavour to answer your questions about your machines and help you out with any issues you might have with any previous sewing projects. During the day we will also make a small make-up style bag for you to take home, which will give you chance to put in a zip and practice buttonholes. This is a great workshop for building on your basic skills and will give you lots more confidence for making your own clothes or lovely projects for your home.
There are six Running With Scissors machines available to use at the workshop, however you can bring your own if you wish. Please note that if you bring your own machine it will be up to you to make sure that it is in good working order and is safe to use. Running with Scissors cannot take responsibility for use of machines other than our own. If you fancy coming to the workshop but have not really used a machine much then consider one of our ‘Sewing machines for Beginners’ courses which will give you the basic skills ready for your sewing adventures.
