Course Description

Social sewing is the opportunity to catch up with your friends and stitch yourself something wonderful to wear!

All you need to have ready is your project and your sewing station. Our two lovely tutors will be on hand to give you the confidence and skills to enable you to complete any tricky parts, so it’s a great time to tackle a technique which you haven’t done before. You will also be able to listen to others and your knowledge will grow with them too! The beauty of these sessions is that not only will we guide you through the making of your garment, but you will be able to see what everyone else is up to and learn from them too. It is also a great opportunity to share idea and inspiration. These sessions are very much student lead and designed to help you get the most out of your time with us.

    I am a new addition to the ‘Social Sewing’ group & I do wonder what took me so long !!!

    It’s 2 uninterrupted hours with your sewing project, a great sewing community, learning as we go with a tutorial from Kaye each week based on requests from the group, I have learned how to do plackets, adjust sleeves on a pattern, shirring and piping to mention a few

    Some of the ladies in the group have been ‘Social Sewing’ for quite some time and seeing the friendships that have been forged and knowledge that is constantly shared is something very special, Kaye really has a unique talent or creating the perfect environment for people to learn, create and share.

    I joined the group during lockdown as it has moved to Zoom , but once lockdown restrictions are lifted and I move to Hitchin I am very much looking forward to joining ‘Social Sewing’ in person.

    Thanks so much to everyone at The Studio at Number 30 for continuing to make this event happen, especially at a time when we need it & each other the most xx
