Beginners textile techniques class

Here is some information about the class I will be running from January 2018 at the Poldrate Arts and Crafts Centre in Haddington. My Textile Techniques class is geared towards beginners. If you would like to gain confidence in starting your own sewing projects and learn some new techniques, then book your place now! I’ll help you with a range of techniques in hand and machine sewing while showing you how to make some simple gift and home decor items.

Class details

The class will be on Thursday mornings starting in January from 10-12 noon. Classes are great value for money at £70 for 10 classes, plus you will need to pay the PACC annual membership fee of £15. To book go the the PACC website. On the first week we will decide whether to run ten consecutive weeks or whether to have a week’s break in the middle, depending on what suits the class attendees.
