Our Evening Sessions

Available in Leeds Only...

Our Evening Sewing Courses are the ideal opportunity to learn to sew on an evening. First choose a sewing course you would like to learn and then choose the day you would like to attend. Once you have chosen the evening you would like to attend and the start date, you will then attend every week on this evening for 6 weeks.

All our Evening Sessions start at 7pm and finish at 9pm and are held at our Sewing Studio in Leeds. All materials are provided and you get to keep the item we make in the sessions. We also provide helpful handouts which detail all the techniques you learn, so you can practise them at home with confidence.

Evening sewing classes build your knowledge of sewing over a few weeks. It's a great way to meet new people and learn new skills along the way.

Beginners Sewing Session Images
  • Beginners Evening Class
  • With all the same content as our Beginners Sewing Day Session... and more! You will learn everything you need to start sewing. We start the first session with how to thread your sewing machine and make a cute drawstring bag. Each week you will learn more to get you started in the world of sewing. Curves, seam finishes, bias binding, facings, interfacing, how to read and cut out a pattern and loads more. You leave the session at the end of the 6 weeks with a beautiful handmade bag and the confidence to start on your own project

  • Purse and Bag Session
  • Our purse and bag evening session spends the 6 weeks learning different purses and bag techniques. The first week you will learn to make a framed lined purse with a metal clasp, we will then spend the next weeks making a lined bag with zip pockets and magnetic clasps. The Sessions will incorporate lots of different techniques which will be transferable to other bags and accessories. You will receive a pack with all the techniques you learn and all fabrics and materials are provided. A great session for you to accessorise your wardrobe, make as gifts or just keep them for yourself!

  • Dress with zip and sleeves
  • This session teaches you to make a dress from a pattern, learn to alter a pattern to fit you, lay out and cut the pattern. We will spend the 6 weeks making a dress with a zip fastening at the back, along with adding sleeves and either a collar or facings... its up to you! You will leave the session with a beautiful dress, handmade by you and fits you perfectly too! A great session to take the next step with zips, fastenings, patterns and sleeves.

    We provide the pattern and the fabric but if you would like to bring your own material you will need 2 metres of Cotton, Poly-Cotton, linen or a light weight tweed.
