We decided that it would be nice to share our love of sewing with all of our lovely customers, friends and future fashion designers!

If you'd love to make your own clothes, or just want to perform wardrobe surgery on what you already own then we want to help you. We want to provide you with the skills missing to finish off all those clothing projects you have on hold.

We'll show you how to put in hidden zips, give you access to over lockers and just help with anything at all that you're struggling with.

This service is also perfect for anyone studying fashion design who needs some practice, or a little guidance with more complicated technical stuff.

Bruno will be giving 2 hour classes for absolute beginners for 30

Rory is available on Thursdays and Saturdays for walk ins, and any other day by appointment. 
Rory will be helping intermediates for €20 an hour.

We also provide use of our facilities for fashion students who need the practice on our various sewing machines, over lockers, and various other pieces of hefty equipment the average student doesn't have regular access to.

Be sure to check our sewing clinic event page for more information here.

FAQ after the jump...

Q. What sort of thing does Bruno cover in his classes?

A. His classes cover everything a beginner needs to know about sewing.

Q. What do you mean by beginner?

A. We mean someone who knows absolutely nothing or next to nothing about sewing. Bruno will be starting with how to thread a sewing a machine and then go on to teach his clinic attendees about all the sewing basics.

This is literally machine sewing 101.

Q. What sort of thing will Rory cover in his clinics?

He'll cover any blind spots at all that the clinic attendees don't know. He'll help with anything you're struggling with and show you how to do it yourself as well so that it won't be a problem in the future. Then, you're welcome to practice your new skills on our equipment and Rory will be on hand if there are any more issues.

Q. What do you mean by 'intermediate'?

We mean anyone who knows slightly more than the basics of machine sewing, and has made their own clothes in the past or has an interest in making clothes for themselves in the future.

Q. Why is Lucy's Lounge offering such fantastic services at a fraction of the normal cost?

A. We believe that everyone should not only be able to sew, but should be able to enjoy it as well!

For the month of June we were offering five day classes, the cost of which would be covered by us then selling the items made during the class. But unfortunately we found that often, people who had booked the time didn't show up, and those who did were utterly exhausted after the five days. So it was time for the same idea, just shorter and with a small fee to ensure people would attend.

Q. What's all this about Lucy's 25 year anniversary?

A. It's exactly what it sounds like! Lucy's Lounge has been in business in one form or another for a ridiculous 25 years! And now we're celebrating by putting on an event every month from June 2011 to June 2012, some small, some big, all fun as hell. So keep your eyes peeled over the coming months for various competitions, workshops and events x
