The Mamahood is so excited to be collaborating with gorgeous local business Tilly and The Buttons, to bring a workshop exclusively for our local mamas. Come and learn everything you need to get you sewing and discover the joys of dressmaking!
Tilly and the Buttons was set up by Tilly Walnes, a DIY dressmaker, sewing pattern designer, teacher, author of book Love at First Stitch and founder of the popular sewing blog www.tillyandthebuttons.com. Tilly has been featured in the likes of The Guardian and The New York Times and was also in BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

- Getting to grips with stitching – tips for straight lines, curves and corners
- Sew a simple scarf to tie around your head, neck or bag
- Tips on getting into sewing – easy project ideas, essential tools and how to choose a sewing machine
WHO IS IT FOR?
This workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to start using a sewing machine for the first time, or who hasn’t sewn in a while and needs a refresher.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING ALONG?
No need to bring anything with you, we’ll provide tools and sewing machines for you to use, plus fabric and thread to make your scarf. You’ll also get a goodie bag to take away with you, and at the end of the class we’ll toast your new sewing skills with a drink!
