August Blog - You're Sew Vain

Monday, 31 August 2015 § 0

For August’s workshop the Roses were joined by Sue and Kielly from O.W.L Industries to help tackle their fear of zips.  Zips can often scare a new sewer as they seem so complicated but thanks to Sue and Kielly’s fabulous tuition everyone got to try their hand at this new technique.

The group were not only given a lesson in sewing machine 101, teaching them how to thread up and use a sewing machine, they also got to make zipped pouches, in some truly amazing fabrics (we’re not jealous honest!). For some on the workshop it was the first time using a machine

Everyone went home with a fabulous purse/make up bag and hopefully feel confident enough to sew their own zips in future. So it’s only a small step to seeing their handmade clothing creations (maybe we should have a catwalk) or maybe even appear on the sewing bee – say hi to May for us.
