Learn how to sew perfect zips

 

THE CLASS:

Do invisible zips leave you cold?  Would you love to make jeans but can’t face a fly zip?  Come along for expert tips and guidance on how to sew the perfect zip.  Your invisible zips will be invisible – unless you choose to make a feature of a coloured zipper tape.  Adding a zip to jersey fabric needn’t be wavy.  Your fly zips will fly off the machine and your lapped zips will make you want to run round the track in glee.  Bad jokes are also included in this course.  You can bring along your own zipper foot so that you can practise with it, but we do have regular and invisible zipper feet for you to use in the studio.
