Buttons and Edges

Our second sewing evening will be focusing on buttons and edging.

Sewing buttons is a subject in which many think they know, but there really is many different ways in which buttons can, and should, be sewn onto garments. Jacket buttons are sewn differently from shirt buttons, which are differently from trouser buttons etc etc

Edging is a type of decorative embroidery, perfect for sprucing up handkerchiefs or scarves. We will be looking at, and practising various hand sewing techniques that can be used for a multitude of embroidery or customising projects.

The evening will run from 6.30 - 8.30 on Wednesday 18th July in the Flying Duck Club Glasgow. As usual the evening is £10 a head and we will provide the basic materials, (free to bring your own if you wish) and we'll get a couple of beers (or tea or coffee if you would rather)

Places must be booked in advance here, and are on a first come first serve basis.

see you there chaps.
