Price: £32.75 £38.50



This class is for those of you who would like to start sewing with jersey/knit/stretchy fabrics but don't know where to start.

You can make a pair of leggings, a simple t-shirt for a child or an adult or a child's skater dress or swishy skirt in one evening.

If you would prefer to sew your own project using stretchy fabrics that's fine, just bear in mind that you may not get your project completed in the lesson.

We will cover how to treat stretchy fabrics when cutting out, the raw edges, sewing machine settings and needles, sewing methods and top tips to keep the layers straight and the same length throughout!

The workshop includes the pattern, pattern paper and any elastic. 

You will need to bring your fabric with you, prewashed.

We will have specialist sewing needles that you can borrow for the evening as well as stock available to purchase at the end of the night.

If you would like to use one of our knit fabrics for your make you will qualify for 20% off the list price of the fabric.



SUITABLE FOR: This is a great introduction to sewing with knits. We recommend having had some practice with regular/woven fabrics before you tackle stretchy fabrics.

SKILLS COVERED:  Reading, tracing and cutting pattern pieces.  Sewing together and topstitching stretchy fabrics.

WHERE: Courses are held in Duckington, just outside of Witney.  There is on-site parking and no stairs to navigate.

WHEN: Available dates are shown above - If you can't make it to the dates shown, why not consider signing up for a one to one or many course - click here to find out more.


Payment is required at the point of booking your place on one of our workshops or sewing courses.

In you need to cancel up to 3 weeks before the start of the class,we will offer you the choice of transferring to another date, or a refund minus a £15 cancellation fee (if we manage to sell the place this reduces to £5).

If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the start date, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a refund or transfer.  With less than 3 week's notice it is difficult for us to fill places and it isn't fair on other people who would have liked a place, had they had more notice. We can put you on a reserve list for a future date, and if we still have spaces 3 weeks before the start of a course, we will slot you in at no additional cost.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us - email call 01993 700411, or pop along to one of our pop-up shops (click here for details) to meet us in person and find out more!
