Course details

Since opening the shop in Miltown Malbay, I’ve had a number of requests for a men’s sewing class and I’m delighted to be able to oblige with a dedicated, 4-hour, course to be run over two Thursday evenings. Recognising that dressmaking is unlikely to be a top priority, you’ll be making up this popular backpack pattern – pre-tested by my non-sewing husband!

 

What will I learn?

By the time you’re finished this men’s sewing class, you’ll not only have used a sewing machine to create a cool, lined backpack in contrast fabrics, but you will have also encountered other useful sewing skills including:

  • Pattern layout
  • Transfer of pattern markings
  • Different cutting methods
  • Working with seam allowances
  • Trimming and finishing of seams
  • Use of magnetic fasteners and strap buckles

What will I need?

Loan machines are available, if required. Otherwise, a simple sewing kit would be useful:

If you have these things at home, all well and good. If not, you can buy them in-house or on-line at this store. All currently-registered participants benefit from a 10% on the marked prices (excluding patterns).
