“A dream of sewing is associated with fixing, repairing, or renewing something in your life.” ✨ This course is designed to both teach the basics of sewing and develop self confidence through building a new skill. We believe in the importance of rediscovering crafts. Learning a craft means appreciating it, paying attention to details, creating something you desire, making an effort and experiencing new things. ✂️ Our intention is to create a safe space in which you can spend time with yourself and with others, share knowledge and use your creativity to make something and proudly say: I made this.
