As part of our new workshop schedule we are launching the Sewing Parlour – a Thursday afternoon and evening sewing Fest!
Every Thursday from 15.00 – 19.00 you will be able to come to Cross and Woods with all your sewing questions and ask for the help of our expert!
Our “expert” is Bastian Brumme -for the last 12 years Bastian has been a clothing advisor and since 2012 he has been working as a professional tailor. After completing fashion school in Amsterdam he worked for several Dutch fashion designers. And now he is busy building up his own couture line, making items to order and teaching sewing classes to adults and kids.
You will be able bring your sewing project to the shop and ask how to put a zip in? or how to put pleats in a skirt? how to fit darts in the back of your dress? or even ask what has gone wrong with your project and how to correct it. Bastian will be able to show you and you will be able to finish your project in the store.
We offer just an hour with Bastain, a 5 hour strippenkaart, or 10 hour strippen kaart – the choice is yours to chose which option suits you best. All options are bookable through the website or by calling or emailing the shop.
For those who are learning to sew and maybe know just the basics we are offering a “sew your first project using a sewing pattern” – sewing patterns tend to use their own language, the same as knitting patterns, and this takes some help to understand, also choosing the right fabric for a pattern can be challenging as there as so many to chose from.
In this 6 week class Bastian can help you overcome all of these potential mine fields and help you make the perfect outfit!
Tuesday afternoon here at C&W will be Kids Craft afternoon – we find it such a pity that many children don’t have the opportunity to learn handwork skills at school, so we thought we would like to teach them. Every tuesday afternoon between 16.30 and 18.00 you can bring your kids and they can learn to sew, knit, crochet and we can inspire their creativity.
You will be able to purchase a 5 or 10 strippenkaart – each strip will be valid for one afternoon.
So come and help us celebrate all thing sewy!
