What to bring to corset class

For all corset classes at Sew Curvy, please bring your favourite sewing tools including pins, fabric scissors and any co-ordinating coloured thread to go with the fabric you bring - if that is required for your particular course.

If you are on the intermediate course or the advanced corsetry course, both of which use fashion fabric, and you wish to self bind your corset, please make your bias binding in advance of the course.

Sewing machines are supplied by Janome UK so there is no need to bring your own unless you want to.
