BUTTON IT -Online
January 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm£30.00
Creating a buttonhole can feel a daunting task to even the most accomplished sewist. In this workshop we will be exploring the variety of different types of buttonholes our machines offer and where best to apply them in our sewing projects, building confidence and conquering that buttonhole phobia.
This is an online workshop that will be conducted over zoom. We have a three-way camera system that will allow viewing at different angles to enhance your learning. You will receive a fabric sample pack along with a work booklet to make your notes and save your samples to. You will also have access to a recorded session of each of the tasks for your future reference
