Work shirt sewing workshop poster

Craft Beer Stitch-Up 4

It is back, the fourth of it’s kind….. a day of sampling craft beer, eating Bango Sushi and making a work shirt along the way.

We realised that sewing had got a bit too twee so we decided to shake it up.

Alongside quenching your thirst with drinks from Lauter Bottle shop, you will make a Foreman Shirt in chest size 36-46 , using a Merchant & Mills pattern.

The Foreman features a boxy cut, 2 piece sleeve, a neat square collar, 2 hip pockets and one breast pocket.

Take charge in this practical, hardworking utilitarian jacket. Inspired by traditional work wear of the early 50s.

All abilities welcome, don’t worry if this is your first time using a machine.

Where: O L D E R O P E, 5, The Moor, Falmouth Cornwall TR11 3QA

When: Sunday 12th February 9am-5pm

Price: £90 including pattern, beer and lunch

Skill Level: No prior knowledge required

Class size: max. 6

What will I learn?

We will start by cutting out the commercial pattern in your size

then cut out the fabric you have brought along with you or we can provide

Simple and easy to follow instructions to get you through your make.

You will learn how to create facings, inseam pockets, button plackets, and inset sleeves.

If you have to leave early or don’t quite finish,  you can come back to complete your garment in store, free of charge.

Claire will be on hand to support you through your creation

What is included?

  • We provide all of the tools and equipment you will need to create your shirt.
  • A Bango’s lunch and 3 craft beers are included in the day.
  • A Foreman Shirt Merchant & Mills pattern in chest size 36-46 for you to keep.

What do I need to bring?

  • Fabric, threads and buttons. We prefer you to use preloved or waste fabric. You can visit Ring Rose fabrics in Redruth where you will receive a 10% discount or the Retro Falmouth in Penryn, for Zero waste options. Please wash all fabric prior to the day to allow for pre-shrinkage.
  • We have Gutermann Recycled sew-all threads available to purchase in store.
