Join us over February half term for our children's beginners sewing workshop on Thursday 16th February, 2-4pm.
Get to know how to use a sewing machine with our beginners sewing workshop. Learn how to set up your machine, how to thread a bobbin, how and when to use different stitches and seams and then put all your knowledge together to create an envelope cushion cover.
Please note this involves operating a sewing machine so is only suitable for children age 7 - 17. This workshop is for absolute beginners, no previous sewing experience is required.
All equipment is supplied for the workshop including the sewing machines and attendees will take home a completed envelope cushion cover as well as a basic knowledge of how to operate a sewing machine. Please bring 1/2 metre of cotton or polycotton fabric with you to make the cushion.

Where possible please arrive five minutes before the workshop starts and if you are dropping off, please arrive promptly at pick-up.
Minimum & maximum numbers:
Where possible we always endeavour to run our workshops but sometimes it is not cost effective to do so. We therefore ask for a minimum of 2 attendees booked onto our sewing workshops in order for it to go ahead. Our maximum number for sewing workshops is now 6 attendees per session.
If a workshop is fully booked and you would be interested in joining us, please do contact us, if we have enough interest we will do our best to offer an alternative workshop date or time.
Please note we do not offer cancellations on our workshops this is due to us requiring minimum numbers in order to run and because we have to order materials and prepare for the workshop in advance.
Where possible I will try to offer an alternative date or am happy for you to change the name of the booking if you can find someone to fill your space. Please notify us if someone is coming in your place.
We only offer refunds in circumstances where Pom Stitch Tassel has to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.
Please note this workshop involves operating sewing machines and equipment. Upon booking this workshop you accept the risks of using this equipment.
If you have any questions at all about our policies or how our workshops run please don't hesitate to get in touch - email@example.com / 07864009316.
I look forward to seeing you on a workshop soon.
