Coming in 2019 – Sewing School – 5 day dressmaking course in Bawtry – dates
December 31, 2018
I’m writing to tell you about Sewing School and the course dates coming up in early 2019.
If you haven’t heard about Sewing School before, it’s a 5 day course designed for beginner or improving dressmakers just like you. Monday-Friday, 3 hours per day for you to grow your dressmaking skills, whatever your current level.
Sewing School with no more than 3 students on each course bridges the gap between private 1:1 lessons and group workshops.

If you’re in any doubt as to how good Sewing School is, every student who has attended previous Sewing School courses have booked a further Sewing School course.
The reason I’m telling you about it now, just before Christmas is because the next Sewing School starts on Monday 7th January, and there are still some places available on the morning session.
New Year Sewing School runs from Monday 7th January – Friday 11th January, 9.30am-12.30, with optional fabric shopping trip to Waltons Fabrics and Tuesday Sewcial included in the price of £129.
