WHAT SHOULD I MAKE?
Catherine can help you to decide on your choice of pattern and suggest suitable fabrics
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN PATTERN AND MATERIALS?
Yes, you need to provide your own pattern and materials for courses and workshops although some workshops have the pattern included.
WILL I BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH OTHERS IN THE CLASS?
In regular classes, everyone works on their individual garments at their own pace, so there is no pressure to keep up with others
DO YOU OFFER GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes! I offer gift vouchers beautifully presented in an individual handmade fabric envelope. They make the perfect gift for anyone learning to sew! Contact me on 07968 047944 or
WHAT IS 'LOVE YOUR CLOTHES'?
I'm a Love Your Clothes supercrafter. Love Your Clothes aims to reduce the environmental impact of clothing by raising awareness of the value of clothes. They provide practical tips, hints and knowledge to influence and inspire people to take action and start loving their clothes.
DOES MY MACHINE NEED A PAT TEST?
If it is over 1 year old, this needs to be done. Peter Booth Electrical located on Stafford Road, Newport is able to help with this at a cost of £5 per item. Peter can be contacted on 01952 820004 or
DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO USE A SEWING MACHINE TO ATTEND A WORKSHOP?
You do need to have basic skills in using a sewing machine to attend most workshops. Tuition is available for this if needed.
DO I NEED TO BRING A SEWING MACHINE?
Preferably yes. By using your own machine you learn how to use all of its features and really get to know what it can do. Some machines are available to borrow if needed.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE ATTENDING EACH COURSE OR WORKSHOP?
Our courses and workshops will be attended by no more than 6 students at a time so that we can give you as much time and attention that you require.
CAN I BOOK MORE THAN ONE PLACE?
You can book online for up to 2 students at a time. If you wish to book more spaces, or want to enquire about a group session, please contact Catherine directly to arrange this.
