Get to grips with sewing machines with Repair What You Wear

Monday evenings, 5.45pm - 7.45pm in the Lend and Mend Hub, Central Library.

Monday 4 December, 11 December and 18 December.

This class is designed for those who want to use sewing machines, for repair and creative projects but don’t have experience.  It will cover threading machines, all core stitching techniques, handling materials and problem solving. This short one-off course is the best grounding to coming back into the library to use the machines in your own time.

Spaces are limited so booking essential. Sessions open for booking seven days in advance.

NB: This is a one-off course with the same session taught every Monday. Please only book on to one session.


Lend and Mend: Any Question Answered (drop-in sessions)

Thursdays, 11.30am - 2pm in the Lend and Mend Hub, Central Library

Sessions take place on Thursday 30 November, Thursday 7 December and Thursday 14 December.

Repairs save money and keeping clothing out of landfill is good for the planet. Bring you repair queries and the Repair What You Wear team will help you fix your stuff, give advice, and try to get your clothing back to good use.

Please note that these drop in sessions will not feature any hands on teaching with the sewing machines. Please sign up to one of the sessions above for an introduction.
