Get to Grip with Zips

This event has already taken place.

Are zips your nemesis?  Do you veer away from anything with a zip?   They may have teeth, but they aren’t fierce!

This two-hour workshop will help you get to grips with the finer points of setting in a zip for smooth results.

Learn the tips and tricks to perfect zips, to give your next me-made extra pizzazz.

During this workshop Pippa, from Norwich Sewcials, will take you through how to put in an invisible zip and a lapped zip, the two most common zips used in dressmaking today.

There will also be advice on the different types of zip available and how to choose the correct zip for the job.

All materials are included in the workshop.  Sewing machines will be available but if you would prefer to bring and use your own, please enquire before booking.
