One Day Sewing Classes - May 2016 - Stillorgan, Co Dublin

One Day Classes - May 2016

Sewing isn’t rocket science but it is important to get it right. Calculating your measurements correctly can be confusing.   Cutting up expensive fabric can be daunting and sitting at the machine trying to get the look you want can seem impossible, it isn’t.  I will take you through all of these areas step-by-step and show you how to avoid the common mistakes people make.The following One Day Courses will be held during May 2016 at Sew Easy

Alterations - Saturday 14th May
The alterations class always proves to be very popular.  It is amazing the difference it can make to how your outfit looks on you by changing it slightly to fit your exact measurements.  An outfit can go from okay to fabulous with very little work and a little know how.  Or you can completely reinvent a dress by changing it from maxi to midi or mini.

Creative Cushions - Saturday 21st May
Making your own cushions can be an inexpensive and easy way to add colour and comfort to your room.  You will learn how to make a pattern for a cushion and when you gain more confidence you will then be able to adapt the pattern to suit your needs or changing trends.   You can completely change the mood in a room by adding something as simple as new cushions. You can go for soft, gentle, muted tones for a relaxing feel or go all out and add a bold statement colour that really makes an impact.     

Patchwork - Saturday 28th May
The romance associated with patchwork never seems to fade.     Patchwork can be as intricate and time consuming as you make it.   It is a lovely past time.   It really allows you to use your imagination and make a one-off very personal piece.  This one day course gives you an introduction to patchwork and will allow you discover if patchwork really is for you.

For full details please go to our website www.seweasy.ie
Sewing Skills BootcampYou will get so much more from all of our courses if you have experience using a sewing machine.  If not, it would be advisable to do our Sewing Skills Boot-Camp first and then sign up for the course(s) you are interested in.

Our next weekend Bootcamp will start on Saturday 11th June or the midweek Bootcamp starts on Tuesday 7th June 2016.

6 Week Courses in Dressmaking, Patchwork and Soft Furnishing

All classes in the current term are booked out.  The next term starts from 23rd, May 2016.
If you are interested in joining one of our courses we have both morning and evening classes available, Monday to Thursday, so we should have one that suits your schedule.
