2 hour workshop // 3:30pm - 5:30pm // Instructor: Susie Haigh // Cost: £25 (includes sample fabric)

This workshop is part of the Sew Doable open studio weekend at The Stitchery. We've been listening to your feedback, and this is one of the topics you really wanted to cover. So we've created this mini workshop just for you. 

About This Workshop

Setting in a sleeve is a standard requirement for many garments, and once you've learned this basic technique it's something you can use again and again. In this two hour workshop, Susie Haigh will be demonstrating how to set in a standard sleeve, including some tips on giving it the right amount of ease. Students will then have an opportunity to try out this technique on their own sample, with Susie on hand for any questions.

Note: You must have a basic understanding of garment construction for this course. If you've taken any of our beginner Making Clothes or similar courses, then you will be fine.
