Just read this over at the Women's Room and found out my local JL is participating! They are running classes for just the cost of materials used and they last 2 hours. It's not rocket science for us crafters what they are teaching but I always love to see others take on how to do things. And I definitely want the leaflet at £3.00.
John Lewis believe there is an increased interest in maintaining and making things and sales in its haberdashery departments are up a reported 17% this year. The little booklet, which costs £3.00, is full of useful tips on how to mend tights, make your own curtains and take up hems and is for sale in the habidashery department of most branches. A few John Lewis branches are offering Make Do and Mend classes this September, where you can brush up on your sewing skills, or even learn them for the first time. Classes are free, but you need to book and pay for materiels used. It's time we upgraded our sewing boxes.....
You should pop on over to John Lewis to see if your local one is running them.
The booklet is out from Monday 7th Sept, check stores for availability. xx
