Ola! Does anyone remember the fun we had when I launched our Pyjama Party, back in April? I’m delighted to announce that on the back of our sewing, I’m going to be teaching a Pyjama Party course of four classes right here in Walthamstow, London.
Not only is Catherine as lovely as she looks, but she’s pursuing an inspiring initiative to make crafting local and enabling. I helped out recently on a class teaching sewing to relative beginners and we had a blast – plus I met lovely neighbours I didn’t even know I had.
On the back of this, we’ve decided to hold a Pyjama Party workshop. It will be spread over four Saturdays and will cost £60 for eight hours of teaching. Cheap at half the price! We’re consciously keeping class sizes small to make things friendly and relaxed. This experience should be about fun, friendship, learning and an awesome encounter with fabric and a sewing machine. Plus, students will have a pair of pyjama bottoms and a pyjama bag to take away with them.
Apart from exploratory excursions (cough – communal fabric shopping – cough) the classes will be held at the Significant Seams hub in Wood Street Market. Seriously, guys, you need to check this place out. They’re doing Extreme Knitting this Saturday as part of their fiesta!
Need more convincing? What else?
- We’ll demystify body measurements, fabric choice and cutting out.
- We’ll learn how to work with (free) downloadable PDF patterns. Sellotape to the ready!
- There will be everything you’d expect from a beginner sewing class, plus woven ‘Made By Me’ labels, a map of Walthamstow market, class hand outs, blogger tips (more on that to come) and one heck of a lot of fun!

Basically, we are going to have more laughs than you can shake a stick at – and there’ll be lots to learn. So if you’re in the area, go on over and book a place, but be quick. As I said, the class is going to be compact and bijoux.
And now over to you, dear readers. I know many of you took part in the Pyjama Party. Did you learn any top pyjama tips that you’d share with a novice? I’d love to put together a Blogger’s Guide as one of my hand outs. And you can be sure, I’ll be blogging about the classes! So we might all learn something new.
DATES OF THE CLASSES
8 & 22 September
13 & 20 October
