About Sew Perfect Zips (or Get a Grip on Zips)

Do you struggle to insert a zip? No matter how many times you try, your stitching is still wonky or there's puckers at the bottom?

Don't worry, you're not alone. Sewing in a zip is one of those techniques that many home Dressmakers dread, and even avoid completely. And let's face it,get it wrong and it ruins the look of your garment and screams 'homemade'.

This short session will show you some expert techniques to inserting both standard and concealed zips. Yes I struggled with zips for years too until I learned these tips. Now I don't even think about it. It's really easy when you know how.

Sewing machines provided or bring your own.

Level: Beginners upwards
Duration: 2.5 hours
Cost: £22

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sew Perfect Zips (or Get a Grip on Zips) are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
