About the event

Are you creative? Have you always wanted to know how to actually use that sewing machine you own but have never turned on? Own a chihuahua that’s chilly or a Jack Russell who would love a jacket? Well look no further, Anita is here to help! In her introduction to sewing class, you will be guided through the essentials and leave with a perfectly tailored frock for Frenchie!

Over the space of a day, you will learn how to draw your own reusable bespoke pattern using measurements taken from your own prize pup. Start by cutting out your fabrics, sewing the pieces together and finishing with a signature collar to complete your very own handmade dog coat. Time permitting you will get the opportunity to add embellishments to make you staffy stand out. This might be an embroidered name, a glow in the dark strip, or even a little pocket so they can carry their own doggy bags.

If you have your own sewing machine and you want to use that then feel free to bring it with you. If you don’t have your own, no need to worry, we have some you can use along with all the materials you will need for the day. There will be tea and coffee breaks along with an hour for lunch and with so many cafes in the Baltic area you won’t have a problem finding somewhere nice.

So go on, spoil your spaniel!
