Sewing machines and other large equipment is supplied, but learners should aim to bring their own 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 purchase all materials and threads etc for the project, this cost depends on the fabric purchased, but we encourage re-using, recycling and love charity shops!
