Sewing with Tiger

Sewing with Tiger

March 15th, 2019

Sewing is a big part of our Tiger Green Textiles project, along with knitting and crochet.

We have a number of options for people to participate with us, depending on whether your focus is learning to sew or being creative in a friendly environment.

We are passionate about recycling and sustainable living and try to incorporate it into all the sessions that we run, as well as ensuring everyone has fun and leaves with a smile on their face.

Core to the project are our Community Workshops. These workshops bring people together in a creative atmosphere to learn and share skills whilst turning pre-loved materials into beautiful new makes, mainly sewing with the occasional knitting and crochet.

Free to attend and accessible to all, these sessions build confidence and self-esteem and provide the opportunity to make new friends.

We are looking for community groups to host community workshops with their group, whether it's a one off session to make a project or a series of sessions to grow your own recycling group.

Following feedback from taster sessions in the area we started a Sewing Group at Bakersfield Community Centre (BANCA) in Sneinton. Open to all in the community to take part, you can bring your own sewing projects and get help from Toni and the group. We have machines available to use and lots of space for cutting out.

These sessions are a great way to build your sewing skills and make new friends.

We also  work with AC Crafts on Nuthall Road, running sewing classes and occasional crochet classes. You can work at your own pace, choosing your projects as you go along. You will get ongoing tuition to build your skills.
