Barbara Roots has been teaching dressmaking for many years, primarily with Kent Adult Education.  She is extremely knowledgable, patient and kind and you will benefit enormously from her instruction as well as enjoying the lovely company of others.

In this class Barbara will give you comprehensive guidance to insert professional looking zips into your garments. You will take home your own samples of a concealed zip, lapped and fly front zips.

Please bring along one 8-10” concealed zip and two 8-10” normal zips and some scraps of fabric big enough to use with the zips.

This is a half day class and runs from 10am - 2:30pm

  • You will receive an email when you book that says 'links to download your digital products'  Don't panic.  This is just a PDF for you with the course details, materials needed and a bit more information relevant to the course.  You will not need to do anything else but if you have any questions just drop me an email.

  • Please be aware that class fees are non-refundable.  However, if we need to cancel the class for any reason you will, of course, receive a full refund.  The rare exception would be if you give us plenty of notice and we are able to find a replacement student for your space. (That's the beauty of the waiting list)
