Hello, I'm new here - just sort of poking around  Cheesy

I was just wondering if there was anyone here from around the Brighton area - and even better someone who can teach me how to use a sewing machine! Else I shall book myself into a brighton and hove college course, I've heard they are pretty good.

I like cross stitch and papercrafts too - but I'm terrible for actually finishing any projects  Embarrassed

oh well,
anyway, have a nice day Cheesy

Hiya!

I used to live in Brighton Grin

I live in Kent now Smiley

I learnt to sew at my local Adult Education.

Pick up a prospectus from the local centre or library.

The courses will be starting again in September  Wink

Good luck!

Hiya

I'm a Brighton girl!   I cannot really help with the sewing machine myself, but can definately recommend a course at City College Brighton and Hove, in the adult learning section at the Connaught.  There is a one day "Get to know your sewing machine" course.  The prospectus is out over the next few weeks, and the course normally runs towards the end of September.  It books up so fast so get in there early, and the tutor is great.

Ooooh what are you studying bexsus??  I'm hoping to do business and management, but really not sure that I'll meet the ABB grade requirements.  I just hope they might take into account that my A-level subjects are a harder combination than what people normally do (maths, physics, french).  And I've been running my crafty jewellery business for a few years...should I tell them that lol!  I am so in love with Sussex though, and the lanes will be the perfect place to sell my jewellery.  Anyway sorry to hijack your topic fizzkitten x

Just reawakening a very old post to see if any of you lovely ladies are still around.

I've just moved into a flat in North Laines (dangerously close to the Brighton Bead Shop!)
