What you need to bring:

  • Just yourself and some drinking water, sewing is thirsty work!

Come away feeling confident and proud of your hand stitching skills. By the end, you'll have made a linen stocking and decorations to treasure for many festive years to come.

Your host

Carla Diogo

Carla decided to open a teaching studio because she believes there's no better way of adding value to your wardrobe than learning how to make clothes yourself. Gaining the knowledge to turn fabric into clothes is a magical craft she's passionate about sharing with her guests. Carla's worked in fashion for over ten years, the mass waste associated with the fast fashion industry got Carla thinking about more sustainable approaches to our wardrobes. She wanted to embrace a smaller wardrobe, full of pieces she could wear in any given season and still love. This is how Set Square Patterns was born.
