As an introduction to hand sewing, bespoke tailor and dressmaker Alis Le May has created a series of easy to follow tutorials for adults which will teach you some key hand-sewing techniques and stitches.
Watch her short films, and you can master a variety of stitching techniques including:
- running stich
- back stich
- herringbone stitch
- ladder stich
- slip stich
Suitable for adults
These tutorials were created as part of Alis’s ‘A Gathering Thread’ installation in the shop windows of 25 High Street, Paisley. ‘A Gathering Thread’ was funded by Renfrewshire Leisure’s, Cultural Recovery and Renewal Fund: Town Centre, Neighbourhood Creative Installation Grant stream in Summer 2021. With additional support from the Paisley Townscape Heritage Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme 2 (TH.CARS2).
