Sewing and dressmaking  workshops and one to one tuition with professional designer Sarah Culleton.


Personalised Coin Purse Workshop


Sunday 20th May 2018 10.00am - 1.00pm

Allison Turner Designs

26 Derby Rd, Long Eaton, Nottingham NG10 1PD

Inspired by Sarah’s signature style you will make a beautiful personalised coin purse using an image of your own family photograph

The purse will be fully lined, trimmed with ric-rac (optional) and finished with a zip fastening.
All materials and equipment will be provided but if you’d like to bring your own fabrics to make the purse more personal to you or the intended recipient, feel free to do so.

Sarah will give you expert tuition and tips on every stage of the making process and by the end of the session you will have a beautiful finished purse.

•Layout and pin simple pattern pieces
•Stitch even seams
•Add structure to a purse
•Insert a zip
•Create a full lining
•Finish to a professional standard

This workshop is designed for everyone from confident beginners (it is best if you have used a sewing machine before, although not completely necessary*)  to those wishing to advance their sewing skills and learn professional techniques in a warm, friendly, supportive environment, giving you the inspiration and skills to work confidently on your own future projects
You will be using Sarah’s shiny new Singer sewing machines, but you are welcome to bring along your own sewing machine if you would feel more comfortable using it.

On booking your place, Sarah will require a copy or scan of the family photograph you wish to use in your project (which will be returned to you). An image of your photograph will then be transferred onto fabric for use during the workshop. You could also add some text, or a personalised message, which Sarah can also print onto fabric for you.

*Contact Sarah at if you have any questions about your abilities or anything else about the workshop. She’ll be happy to help!
