Hand Made Ties, Again

With the success of last week's hand made tie evening, we've been making ties all week in the studio (more on that later)

So we thought we would repeat last weeks evening and do tie making again. This one is a bit harder than the usual evenings, but definitely doable, if you're interested in coming along, we would suggest brushing up on your running stitch before hand, have a look at this video if you're unsure.

The nice thing about this evening is that you leave with an actual product, that you can go away and perfect, rather than just skills. As well, there are a few different techniques that you will learn along the way that will come in handy for lots of different hand sewing projects.

As usual, we will provide the basic materials, but if you have something special you want to use, bring it along too.

Places are £10 per head, this evening will take place in the usual spot The Flying Duck Club at the usual time 6.30pm-8.30pm

Handmade Tie Making

We wanted to stay away from pattern cutting and garment construction at the gentlemen's sewing evenings, but we thought this was ideal for our chaps to learn.

The tie is such an important addition to any gent's attire and can really pull a suit together, as well as show off the wearers personality. We do love a good tie, they are perfect for every occasion.

So we've decided to dedicate a night to making ties for ourselves. We will tread on the edge of pattern cutting and brush up on our hand sewing techniques to create Handmade and completely bespoke ties.

As usual we will provide the essential materials, but if you have a cloth you would love to use, bring it along as well.

The tie making night will be held at 6.30pm on Wednesday 15th August in The Flying Duck Club, entrance is £10 per head.

see you there chaps.
