    Using the park for sewing eliminates the need for electricity. Instead, we will learn a series of stitches for use without a sewing machine.
    Most garments have a way of closing them. In this case, we’ll take a look at buttons. Many of us are unaware of how to properly sew a button, despite buttons being around for centuries. This lesson will show us how to sew a variety of buttons.
    I love buttonholes! If we want a button, we will need a button hole. Find out how to create a button hole.
    Button covers! How lovely they are! Making a covering button is easy and gives a garment a sense of luxury. You can be as creative as you like. Our button kits start at £3.50 for ten pieces. You can bring your own fabric or get one free from our box.
