Open Sew Surgery With The Pro

January 4, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


Let’s Kick off the New Year and clear some of those UFO’s “Un-Finished Objects” or sewing phobias!

From Time to Time we all start a project, stop midway, and then promise ourselves that we’ll return to it later?

Whether it’s because:

  1. We got bored; the project took longer than expected.
  2. We got frustrated; the fit wasn’t right, the instructions were incomplete or plain hard to understand,
  3. The required skill level pushed you beyond your comfort zone.
  4. Or simply lost the Sew Jo for that item.

Ultimately, it’s about being able to decipher which projects are worth coming back to and when we should cut our losses. Some projects are worth coming back too, that beautiful fabric can’t become bin fodder, when there’s a chance to change it into something new and beautiful.

Expert Sewing Guru Claire Louise Hardie; pattern designer, sewing author, costume designer and producer of the Great British Sewing Bee, will be holding a special one-day sewing surgery to save your project, save that fabric, save your sanity!

She will teach, guide and inspire you by tweaking, refashioning and upping your skills to banish those phobias  get those UFO’s, into fabulous personalised completely new makes.

So, what are you waiting for, rummage through that stash and sew new life into those half-finished makes?
