beautiful bags & perfect purses

The Roundhouse, Devon UK

MAY 19th-22nd 2017

This long weekend course is designed to bring your sewing on and get you sewing with some interesting materials. On Saturday you will be making either a clasp purse or a wallet with Saj Collyer, the wallet being more complicated with an internal zip and credit card pockets. The clasp purse however, is suitable for less experienced sewists, but you do need to have used a machine before. On Sunday you will construct a shoulder bag with pattern expert Nina Cadzow. This class will teach you what goes into giving a bag structure, how to insert a  proper bag zip  with tab at one end  and how to make up a lining with elasticated compartment. There will be tea and cake of course and lots of yummy food all weekend!

If you wish to use one of our new Brother sewing machines (Innovis range) then please advise us on booking.
The Roundhouse is a magnificent timber framed barn conversion with 8 ensuite bedrooms sleeping 12 all together.  It also benefits from lovely surroundings, a 12m heated indoor pool and a games room.
