Want something different to do this summer?  Want to learn a new skill and add a couple of items to your wardrobe?  Well I am pleased to announce that here at Grandma’s Attic we are holding a Summer Sewing Spectacular.

We are holding a 5 week course on basic dressmaking and at the end of it you will take home a lovely made to measure skirt or a pair of trousers and a bag.  You will be taught how to insert zips, line a bag and most importantly how to sew a straight line!!

This is a great opportunity to meet new friends and start to build up your own handmade wardrobe.  The very popular tv show “The Great British Sewing Bee” is responsible for an upturn in dressmaking but if you didn’t learn the basics in school it is very hard to make sense of patterns etc without some tuition, so this is our aim.  The course is to be held at Grandma’s Attic, Belleek every wednesday commencing on the 30th July for 5 weeks.

The cost of the course is £50 plus materials.  You can buy your own material or we can provide it for you at a very competitive cost.  You can choose plain or print, subtle or LOUD!!  Choose to suit your personality.

If you have your own sewing machine then bring it along and learn how to use it expertly or if not then don’t worry you can use the machines here at Grandma’s Attic
