From time to time, I give beginners sewing classes, and currently only with the community sewing room.  These classes/workshops are based in Galway. I have no upcoming classes or workshops currently.

All upcoming workshops and classess will be posted on this blog, or Facebook page.


‘Sewing Fundamentals’ (basic sewing) on Monday evenings 7-9.30 and classes are free but must be booked in advance.   In each class we will make sewing samples of each technique.  Classes are limited to 4, and run for 4 weeks (at the beginning of each month).

The focus of these classes is to learn  basic sewing techniques by making sewing samples of each technique and  using the sewing machines in the room.  There are 4 classes in total and start at the beginning of each month.
