How would you like to learn some basic sewing skills to enable you to repair some of your clothing?

Business owner Fil Baldowski of All Rolled Up (and one of our Repair Café volunteers) will be hosting a one hour workshop at St Pauls church 21st September 10.00am. The workshop  will run alongside the Repair Café session in the Community Hall which opens 10.00am – 12noon.

This pilot will introduce you to some simple sewing techniques and you will take home a little emergency sewing kit that you will have made.

This workshop is an introductory class. There is no need for a sewing machine. You will learn to sew by hand — mastering the running stitch, backstitch, and slip stitch. Plus, you will  learn to make a fabric yo-yo and sew on a button. It’s all about keeping it simple, stress-free, and enjoyable.

Children age 10years plus are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult who can either participate in learning to sew or simply assist their child.

There is no charge for the class. However, a donation toward the Repair Cafe funds would be much appreciated. The class will run for approximately one hour on Saturday, 21st September, at St Paul’s Church in Heaton Moor from 10 am.
