About the Event
Do you struggle to insert zips into your sewing projects or avoid them altogether? Learn how to sew the two most common zips with Vicki in this 2 hour masterclass - a regular zip with lapped finish & an invisible or concealed zip. You’ll learn about the different zip feet for your sewing machine & how to shorten nylon & metal zips for your projects. Vicki will teach you all the tricks to getting a great finish every time, working with sample pieces that you’ll take away with you, along with a booklet to remind you of the steps to foolproof zip sewing.
All materials & equipment are provided. To get the most from this workshop, you will have some experience using a sewing machine & have made a couple of items with a sewing machine. This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners.
