Nice shorts! Thanks, I made them!

Learn how to set up, thread and use a sewing machine from scratch then put your newly found talents to use to make a lovely lined laundry bag or shopping tote all before lunch.

In the afternoon, we'll further your newly found sewing skills and dabble in dressmaking by whipping up a great pair of lounge shorts; perfect to potter, sleep or picnic in at our beginners dressmaking sewing bootcamp.
