Sewing Workshops

What do my bag workshops involve?

You will get sent a needs list on confirmation of booking enabling you to bring your fabric to the workshop already cut and ready to go. I will be able to show you the techniques and skills required to complete that bag. You will get to take that away with you. You will need to provide your own machine, fabrics and notions. However more specialist bag hardware I can supply.

Each workshop varies in length from 3 hours to 5 hours. The average project takes about 5hrs to complete. This can be done either in a 5-hour session, or you can break it up into 2 or 3, 3-hour sessions.

“You get to spend the day sewing with other like-minded people and make a gorgeous bag. If you love sewing or you’re a beginner then Bags by Carmen is the place to be. Have a look on the website for information about workshops. We always have a good time, sewing, enjoying each other’s company & with lots of laughter. Xx”  – Gail on the workshop experience.
