Aspley Sewing Workshop – bringing people together

We are super excited to be launching a new Sewing Workshop at Aspley Community and Training Centre. Women of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds are invited to come along and meet Kimberley Errington, from Make to Make, who will be facilitating this new weekly group on Thursdays from 10 – 2pm from 1st February 2018.

All are welcome on Saturday 20 January to an open event/ taster day from 11 – 3pm to learn more about the project; kids can come too and get creative!  There’ll be food and fun for everyone.

Our aim is to encourage local women to build friendships, learn new skills and feel good about what they can create on a sewing machine! This fits perfectly within our vision to develop creative confidence and unlock space for creative use – ACTC is one of our ‘local creative hubs’ in the making!   The sessions are for complete beginners to more experienced sewers, giving practical skills to local women.

This project has been inspired by Cllr Patience Ifediora, who sees the need within the community she represents for more opportunities for people of all backgrounds to have meaningful opportunities to gather, make, share skills and build friendships.  We’re really pleased to be working with the Labour Aspley Ward Councillors to make this happen and look forward to lots of colourful creations and a lasting legacy for the project!

If you’d like to book a place, please contact Kim Errington at or tel 07976 058825.
