Did you know that our teacher Caroline and Agnes are happy to speak English in sewing class? In their groups we also welcome international customers! New at your sewing machine or rather sewing with guidance and good company? In our sewing class you have a weekly session of creativity and get-together in an inspiring environment at the Meelfabriek in Leiden. During the sessions you can work on sewing clothes/accessories you choose yourself: make what makes you happy!
In the sessions of this sewing class you will work at your own level and your own pace: from beginner to advanced. For the beginner level you learn to work with patterns, fabric and sewing machine. For the advanced level you can dive into different techniques that you apply in garment you want to sew. In the groups you will see a mix of Dutch and English speaking customers: a good way to get to know Dutch & English sewing styles!
The sessions are organized weekly in a small group: 8 persons is our maximum.
