Fix Your Op Shop Finds




Come along to this fun three-hour workshop to revive your wardrobe and fix your op shop finds!

Learn basic hand and machine techniques with which you can make simple repairs and alterations to your garments such as:
– taking/up, letting down and fixing hems on pants and skirts.
– taking side seams or waistbands in and out.
– closing or patching rips and holes
– sewing on buttons and other fasteners so they stay on
– refashioning clothes you own to give them a new lease of life!

or, if you already have some sewing experience, tackle some trickier fixes or more advanced wardrobe refashioning with the expert advice and support of your teacher.
