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


Zip It ((How to sew zips perfectly)


This tuition is especially for all you ‘Zip Phobics’ out there. And as Sarah is a reformed sufferer herself she knows exactly what’s needed to get you over this hurdle so you don’t have to limit your dress making projects to those containing stretch fabrics or Velcro.

In this two hour session Sarah will teach you everything you’ll need to know about inserting zips including:

• Types of zips and the best ones to use for specific projects
• How to sew a centred zip
• How to sew a lapped zip
• How to sew a concealed zip
• How to sew a fly front

Sarah will give you lots of tips to ensure you will be able to achieve a professional finish with your future zipped dressmaking projects.

You can bring your own machine along if you have one or use Sarah’s trusty machine. Please note, if you do wish to use your own machine, you will need a standard zip foot (all sewing machines should come with one as standard) and a concealed zip foot (you may have to purchase one specific to your model of machine).

All materials will be provided.
