Waaaaaaaaah!!! For our anniversary my partner got me 4 Introduction to Sewing lessons at Sew Over It on Essex Road: https://sewoverit.co.uk/
It is the best.present.I've.ever.received. I've honestly not felt so relaxed, happy and centred in as long as I can remember. It's been a truly magical experience to pick up sewing again and go back to the basics to make sure I start as I mean to go on - not cutting corners!!
I would highly recommend taking this course if you're an out of practice enthusiast like me, looking to grow and explore textiles and design. It's 4 weeks and each class is 3 hours long. You make a cushion cover, toiletry bag and a pair of pj shorts/trousers. I'll be posting my progress here, I can't wait to get cracking on my own too!
