  1. Overlockers-Beyond the Basics Saturday 24th February 10:00-13:00 Did you know that an Overlocker doesn't just neaten seams. Use your Overlocker to make cushions, bags, book covers, iPad covers plus many more items. You can even insert a zip with an Overlocker. In this 3 hour workshop we will make a zipped pouch, a folded shopping bag and look at how to incorporate decorative threads into our items. Cost will be £55 which includes all materials (except threads). This workshop is not suitable for the complete beginner who has not used an Overlocker before. If you are a beginner please book onto the Introduction to Overlockers course first. To book a place please email info@littlestitches.org

    Hi are you running any courses next year? My Nice is on a fabrics course at West Kent but they dont do dress making. I haven't set any dates yet for courses next year. Dressmaking lessons are usually better if taken as a 1:1 and then the student can work at their own pace. 1:1 lessons can be booked at any time. Just email me on info@littlestitches.org to arrange a day and time.

    Hi Catherine I'm sorry but I don't have any courses planned on how to make underwear. If you go to craftsy.com they have an online course on bra making called Sewing Bras - Construction & Fit.

    Thank you for your comment Mollie. I am willing to start up a group on a Saturday afternoon once a month. The more people who can make it the better so come on people let me know if you want to come. You can bring your machines and sew away without the distractions of phone calls, kids, etc. I will supply tea and coffee and if you want to bring cake that will be great. There will be a small charge of £2 to cover the cost of refreshments and heating. Shall we say 2nd Saturday of each month 14:00-17:00. Email me via the contact us form if you are interested in attending.
