I have decided after much deliberation that I am going to start up some private sewing classes!
I have a lovely sewing room all to myself and it would be nice to share it and teach!
This is a very new idea at the moment but I'm thinking of running 4 kinds of classes up until Christmas at my home in Worthing, Sussex.
All Classes are 3 day courses of around 3 to 4 hours per day. Each course includes your dress pattern and notions. So all you need to bring is your fabric and thread!
I can teach one on one lessons or in groups of three maximum. (The cost will be slightly more for one on one)
The Beginner Classes are: Make your own PJ Bottoms
Make your own Pleated Skirt
The Intermediate Classes are: Make your own Tunic top or
The Fabulous Christmas Party Dress.
Piemaker is making me a website over the weekend and the price is £110 for the 3 day course. ( The 3 hour ones I looked at were £75 to make hot water bottle covers!)
I am also available to help students who are doing GCSE or A Level projects but that will be a price per hour.
( I have a Btech Diploma in Fashion and Clothing and an A Level Textiles as well as being a home dressmaker and doing my degree in Fashion and Dress History. )
I am currently in the process of choosing patterns to use but as soon as I know I will post them up!
What do you think?
