Artisan Apron  - FULL

Level 2 – Some sewing experience required. Make this super useful Artisan Apron.   This is a great introduction to dressmaking for beginners.  We have made ours in a Merchant and Mills stonewashed linen fabric however it will work with most fabric choices and looks great over pretty much anything!  * Requirements – You will need  between  1.25 to  1.5 metres of your chosen fabric  (depending on fabric width & your measurements) plus matching thread.   Linen can be difficult to work with so if you are fairly new to sewing we would suggest a slightly more ‘stable’ fabric with less movement like a strong cotton.  Please bring a packed lunch, Tea & biscuits provided by us.

Sip & Sew  £20

Join us at the shop for a Social sewing session!   These sessions are for  experienced sewers  who have previously attended one of our workshops.  Come along with your own sewing projects – machine or hand sewing – that perhaps you haven’t been motivated to finish at home alone.  Sew whilst c hatting and enjoying a cuppa with like minded creatives.     You are welcome to use our sewing machines and all our workshop equipment  but you will need to bring along your own thread, pins and essentials sewing bits & bobs.  I  will be on hand to offer advice and assistance but I will not be teaching –  ultimately you will be tackling your own sewing project yourself.  (If you want to learn a new skill then you will have to book onto one of our workshops).    There will be a 10% discount on all fabric and haberdashery on the day and if we don’t have it in stock we will order it for you.  Space is limited in our little shop so sorry no dressmaking or large projects please, but you are welcome to bring them along as a show and tell!  I would love to run this sewing session at least once a month depending on demand. If you have any further queries please email info@anniesattic.co.uk or give me a call at the shop.
