Additional information

Sewing machines and other large equipment is supplied, but you should aim to bring your own “easy” dress or accessory pattern and basic sewing kit of scissors, pins and needles and a tape measure to the first session (all can be bought for about £5). You will need to bring all other materials and threads etc for the project and this cost depends on the fabric purchased, but we encourage re-using, recycling and love charity shops!
