Post Booking Information

Thank you for booking with The Make Room. Here is some information regarding the classes, location of the workroom and what you may need to bring.

The Make Room is situated in Kingsdown, Corsham – not far from Box.

Coming from Corsham head towards Bradford on Avon road and at junction called five ways take the Kingdown Road to the right (follow golf course signs). After a farm on your left, you will see a road on your right called Longsplatt.  Take this right turning and we are second house you will come to.

Parking anywhere on the drive which goes around to the back of the property. Please do not park on the verges opposite as the farmer needs daily access to his fields.

My workroom is in the garage. There is a door on the left. I always look out for new students to guide you, but in case I am distracted, you now know how to find me!

You don’t need to bring anything with you. I have plenty of machines and all the equipment you need. However, if you have a machine that you would prefer to use, or need some help with, then please let me know.

Generally, the first class is going through all the machine basics and making something small and fun!

Then, for example, if you are on the Dressmaking Course; the second class will be understanding patterns/terminology/layouts, measuring, tailors tacking if there is time, then choosing a pattern & fabric ready for week 3, to start cutting out etc.

For more experienced sewers or for soft furnishings, classes will follow on guided by your requirements. I have fabric samples and we can order fabric and patterns for you, if necessary. I can supply all curtain, blind and soft furnishing haberdashery. I also have a good range of general haberdashery you can purchase eg. interface, zips, buttons etc.

If you are on a more advanced class or want to learn a specific craft, then I will be guided by you as to what you want to learn. Of course, you can bring anything you already have along, whether it is fabric, any crafts or something you want to learn how to do.

The classes have a maximum of 4 or 5  students so you all get plenty of individual help.

Meanwhile, if you do have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone.

I look forward to meeting you in person!
