"There are many workshops that teach you skills and technique, my workshops are not one of them. I am passionate about helping people find their creative style, this happens through being open to letting go and of having to do it right and get it perfect. I take you on a journey to meet your creative self and discover many things on the way.

A time for you to tap into your creative energy and nourish your heart and soul! Great if you are feeling a bit blocked in your life either creatively or generally or you just fancy trying something different!"

Sewing Machine: How a sewing machine works, threading the machine & winding the bobbin, adjusting the tension, stitch length/stitch width. 
Sewing: Straight lines/corners, curves, zigzag stitch, decorative stitches.

21st  March

Embrace your Overlocker £20
Please bring your overlocker, instruction booklet and a basic sewing kit. Jacky will demystify your overlocker and make sure you learn the  range of amazing things you can do with it.  Please tell us the make of your overlocker when you book, and inform us if you have your instruction book or not.

28th March 
Saturday 10-4 
Customise and upcycle your clothes 
£40
Bring your clothes and Jacky will guide you through a range of very creative  options to turn your own old things into unique and very special garments. Please bring a sewing kit and sewing machine if you have one, along with items you want to upcycle.

Jacky got her first sewing machine at the age of 13 and it's still going strong. With years of experience and experimentation (and many flops along with the successes), and formal tailoring training under her belt, Jacky has a passion for letting you work and learn at your own pace. Her hope is that you will grow in confidence to play with your machinery and materials so that you can 
explore your own creativity through sewing.
