Backstitch Workshops: New Sewing, Knitting & Crochet Classes


Have you seen the new suite of Backstitch workshops to get you in the crafty mood ready for Spring? We have new crochet and knitting technique classes, as well as a new Machine Basics: Bunting class for beginners, to learn how to make beautiful and ever-popular bunting, while getting to know your sewing machine. You might also recognise some old favourites, back by popular demand, such as the Quilting: Finish Your Quilt: Baste, Quilt and Bind class, and Introduction to Smocking

Backstitch crochet flowers class New crochet class at Backstitch. Learn how to crochet these adorable daffodils, daisies, butterflies & bees

Crochet... Flowers, Butterflies and Bees. Come along and learn how to create these beautiful flowers, butterflies and bees, which may be used to make a wreath, to embellish clothing, hats and bags etc, for garlands and hanging decorations, or for card or gift tag decorations. Once you have learned the technique there will be no stopping you! During the class you may choose from a selection of spring and summer flowers to crochet: daffodil, daisy, blossom or rose. You may also choose to make butterflies, bees and leaves. You may take away the patterns at the end of the class to continue your masterpieces at home.

Knitting Technique: Lace. This is an introduction to lace knitting, covering stitch techniques and reading of charts. We will supply a pattern for a lace scarf and begin to knit it in the class. The pattern may be taken home for you to complete the scarf at home.

Knitting Technique: Cable Cowl. This is an introduction to working cables in knitting. You will start a simple cable cowl and will be furnished with the pattern and knowledge to finish the project at home.

Knitting classes New knitting technique classes at Backstitch: Knitting Technique: Lace, and Knitting Technique: Cables

We have also renamed our 'Zip Pouch' class. This is a fantastic follow-on class which we recommend for people who have attended one or two of our Machine Basics classes, for example the Machine Basics: Tote Bag or the Machine Basics: Bunting class, and who want to learn a few more skills on their machine. In the Machine Improvers: Zipped Pouch class we cover how to insert a zip while making a really useful bag, which can be used as a make-up bag, wash bag or just as a bag in which to keep your knick-knacks!!

We look forward to welcoming you to our Backstitch workshops in our bright studio, to learn some new tricks. You can browse all of our classes and workshops here.
