Attention Londoners: Morley College new course list

Ooh it’s my favourite time of year! No, not new pattern announcement time, but new Morley College course details!

You can see all the fashion/sewing courses here and some of you may also be interested by the textiles courses, which include things like crochet, knitting, quilting, dyeing, and fabric manipulation.

They do the usual basic courses on using a sewing machine, drafting basic blocks, basic draping on the stand, etc, that loads of colleges offer, but they also offer some really interesting niche classes that don’t seem to be offered anywhere else.

Looking at the full lists above, there’s everything from historical wear to hats to shoes to lingerie to dancewear! Most courses only cost around £60, too, which is really reasonably priced, especially when you consider that most of the fashion courses in London start at £300! The facilities at Morley are great, too, with big tables, plenty of light, and ample Bernina machines and dummies, and there’s some seriously good pubs for lunch nearby…

You can read my review of the Pattern Magic 2 course here or my recent review of the Pattern Magic Stretch Fabrics course here.

Ones that pique my interest:

Oh yeah, and Morley also do courses in massage (which I can vouch for!), dance, languages, and music, too, and they’re geared toward “continuing education” so the class times tend to be very office-friendly. Morley College is in London, in easy walking distance from Waterloo Station.

No, Morley haven’t paid me or anything. I’ve just really enjoyed the courses I’ve attended there and wanted to spread the word!

Has anyone else been to any that they can recommend? Anyone signed up for any courses already?

And one, unrelated recent purchase that other sewists might be interested in – I totally love my “Il Centimetro” leather ruler bracelet!

It actually arrived from Italy the day after I ordered, too! Nishi doesn’t seem too bothered about it though… I think she’s more into the hand it’s attached to.
