Sew Much More in 2020!

Lots of exciting news!

Firstly – due to the popularity of the Friday morning Dressmaking class, we have moved the existing class to 9 a.m and slotted in a brand new one – starting at 11am (til 1 pm). This is now available to book! So if you thought you had missed the boat, you have a second chance to bag this fantastic course, for either a January or March start, at the current price of just £99! That’s just £16.50 per 2 hour session! Prices will go up in 2020!

The Thursday evening class has been dropped from the timetable for the time being, but may be re-installed in the Spring if there is renewed demand in 2020.

In addition to that, we also have the ever popular Overlocker Masterclass on Saturday 25th Jan at the Sew Moore Sewing Room in Hinchliffe Mill!

AND – by popular demand – the next Beginners Pattern Drafting course on the weekend of 28 & 29 March 2020, at a discount price of £160 (usually £180)! Limited places available so book early to avoid disappointment!

Look out for other exciting short courses coming up in the New Year!

Thursday to Friday

Just to remind you, as you may already be aware, the Friday morning Marsden class is oversubscribed and is already filling up for March! Thank you to those who have booked already! The Thursday evening class however is consistently undersubscribed. So please could you get your January bookings in by the end of November, because if there are no bookings for Thursday by then that course will be dropped in January. The current Friday class will then move to 9 a.m (as discussed with the current coven) and an extra session slotted in at 11 a.m. So those of you who missed the boat for January will be able to bring your March booking forward, to the 11 o’clock class, if you desire. If 9 am is a problem for those any who have already booked, you may swap to the 11 am slot. (Obviously your tutor will be exhausted and starving by 1 pm, so sustenance in the form of cake will be required at some point of a Friday morning!!!)

Bear in mind, this change will only happen if the Thursday evening class ceases. If it continues to run, the timetable will remain the same as before.   

You may continue to book online in the usual way:

Keen to sew in 2020?

Dressmaking classes are already selling out fast for January 2020! Book online soon to avoid missing out! We also have the Overlocker Masterclass on Saturday 25th January!

Sew into 2020

There will be a few changes to the Sew Moore timetable from January 2020. The regular classes at both Holmfirth and Marsden will be Dressmaking only. Obviously there will be plenty of opportunities within those sessions to make accessories etc to compliment the clothes, but there will be no tuition in class on basic sewing skills for absolute beginners – only dressmaking skills. Private tuition on a one-to-one or one-to-two basis will still be offered to those who need and desire it.

There will also be extra one-off workshops throughout the year on topics for beginners, eg sewing machine set up and how to get started, as we have found that most people do not need a six week course to get to grips with the basics. There will be just one Evening Dressmaking class running at Holmfirth Tech, starting with Monday nights. This may swap to Wednesdays, if Monday proves difficult for some of the regulars. The Friday morning class at Marsden will still run as usual and there may possibly be two if we can slot in another as that session has become very oversubscribed! The Thursday evening one will run as usual for as long as there is enough take up. Otherwise, that may also move to a day time slot.

Basically, if a course is still available there will be a button to book it on the home page!

Prices will go up in the New Year! So book your 2020 courses before then to benefit from current rates! Bookings are already coming in for March!
