|I attended a 1 weekend workshop class in London, presented by Lena Santana.
There were 6 students, so she could give us a personal attention.
We all learned to use a sewing machine, to make a skirt, from how to take measurements, make pattern, up to finishing. We also practice hand-stitching techniques, how to put in a zip, types of hem, etc.
Was a great course which gave us basic knowledge to create new types of clothing.
Beside being a great teacher, Lena is also an excellent designer who gave me much inspiration.
She offers two other courses, "DRAPING" and "COSTUMISE YOUR CLOTHING", which I will make presence.
She has a book "ONE PIECE OF FABRIC" that offers 15 different patterns with sewing techniques to make them and stimulate your creative side.
I CERTAINLY recommend this course, Basic Sewing Techniques, especially for all people who feel a great desire to begin sewing, but do not know how or where to start.
