Our series of masterclasses will focus on techniques and are sample lead.

In this masterclass you will learn how to insert and get a professional finish on the two popular zip methods in sewing.

The first is a lapped zip, where the zip if off set when sewn in so it is concealed by one side of the seam.  This is popular in dressmaking, especially recreating vintage styles and in soft furnishings and craft projects. Featured on the Great British Sewing Bee, but we will show you how to sew this on the sewing machine and not by hand.

The second method is the ever popular concealed zipper where when the zip is done up it looks like it is part of the seam. A special concealed zipper foot is required for this method, making it much easier to insert the zip.

We allow 1 hour per zip insertion to give you plenty of time to practice without feeling rushed.  By the end of the masterclass you will have examples of both and written instructions to take home with you as reference.

This Masterclass is suitable for all levels including beginners. If you have struggled with getting a professional finish to you zips, then this Masterclass will solve any problems you may have.
