CraftyMonkies fan-fave & craft expert extraordinaire Sarah Payne returns with a real treat of a class for all who've ever struggled with getting to grips with zips! Sarah's Zippy Fun workshop will teach you all those little tricks & workarounds to help ensure you never dread working with those pesky zippers ever again!...


Introduction by Sarah:-

Just the word 'ZIP' can make people flinch! Many sewists have a fear (if not a downright dread!) of the zip – including me when I first started out on my sewing journey. Well, I am here to help you with that! In this techniques-based class I will take away that fear and show you a range of ways to use zips – and very soon you will be wondering what you were ever afraid of!


What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

During this class Sarah will go through:-

  • The Feet - Zipper Foot, Adjustable Zipper Foot, Invisible Zipper Foot. What are they and when do you need to use them?

  • Different types of zips and how to make the most of them

  • Using invisible zips in cushions and clothing

  • Using visible/lace zips as a feature on bags or garments

  • Zips in a bag

  • Tabbed zips

  • Inserting a curved zipper (double or single ended)

  • Pockets with zips

  • Adjusting the size of your zips

This is very much a techniques based class so bring a pen and paper, but you will also get the opportunity to make a simple cosmetic bag with a zip fastening.
