Costa Women West of Marbella: Beginners' Sewing Workshop

Event Info

Event Details

  • Half-day Sewing Workshop. NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! If, like me, you have always wanted to learn to sew - now is your chance! Or, if you already have some basic skills but are a little rusty, then come on down on Saturday 14th July at 11am! We shall be making a simple, light-weight summer skirt with an elasticated waist. Your choice to make it knee-length or long-length.

    Our tutor is the lovely Agata who will be leading us through the half-day workshop. She is also a keen baker so (lucky us!) we shall be sampling some of her home-made cakes plus tea and coffee, while we happily stitch away! You are welcome to bring your own machine if you wish, but it is not essential.

    The workshop takes place in Kiddibank Day Care which is a commercial premises near the entrance to the San Roque Golf Resort. Please note it is NOT inside the San Roque Golf Club. Details of how to find the venue will go to those who have confirmed they will be attending. The price is Eur 40, cash on the day plus up to Eur 10 for the fabric pack (all materials necessary to complete the skirt, see below). Agata can't accept card payments, sorry. However, Revolut is available.

    In regards to the patterned fabric we will use - you may bring your own, or alternatively Agata will go to the fabric store on 6th July and send us pictures of some different colours and types of fabric that she suggests we can use, and then you can make your choice from that. Following that, she will wait until 12 July for the fabric order confirmation from attendees. You will need to indicate if you are making a knee length or full length skirt, so she knows how much material to buy. Each person should mark their 1st and 2nd choice in case the 1st choice is not available.

    Further notes from our tutor: "Please see below for the fabric requirements (if you would like to bring your own fabric):
    Option 1: Long flowy skirt 150 cm x 150 cm (for skirt in all sizes)
    Option 2: Medium length skirt (finishing around the knees) 100 cm x 150 cm (for skirt in all sizes)
    Fabric Type: Non-stretch fabric e.g. cotton
    I will bring selection of different fabric packs for the ladies to buy on the day. No deposits needed, on the day payment can only be done in cash or Revolut. If you would like to bring your fabric, chose cotton lawn (light cotton, all Spanish haberdasheries are selling mostly that type of fabric only so you won't have trouble fining it :) You need to buy basic thread (100% polyester) in the colour matching your chosen fabric (I will bring thread and elastic so if you don't find any don't worry)".

    Places are limited so first confirmed, first on the list! Please RSVP as soon as possible to Melissa.
