You will create your own bags. We will sell these bags in the Lolaland-shop and online in the TEX webshop.


First you will learn how to use a sewing machine. And you will learn how to make a simple bag. As you get more skills, you will sew all sorts of materials, and make boards, zippers, buttonholes. Easy! You will allso be part of a group and start a business. Together we will make and sell unique bags with a unique story.

In the meet-up we’ll eat lunch and share dreams. We’ll get to know each other and make plans. Please bring something tasty to eat. So we can create a lunch-buffet together. We take care of coffee and tea!


TEX is created with love and attention from volunteers. Everyone should be able to take part. So we aim to keep our fees low.  We ask for a contribution of 10 euros per lesson. If you can afford to contribute 15 euros per lesson, you would help us greatly!

Every course is 12 lessons. We would like you to be present during the lessons and the lunch meet-up. If you do, during the first six lessons your 10 euros will be set aside. This way you build up a credit of 60 euros. You can use this money to buy TEX-materials like cloth and buttons.

  • Box of pins and needles

  • Seam ripper
