Details:
The ‘Provisional Driving’ Introduction To Using a Sewing Machine class has been developed to address the needs of those who have little or no experience of using a sewing machine. Through this class participants will learn not only basic sewing machine skills, but will develop the confidence to progress onto making things for themselves using a sewing machine.

On completion of this class participants will confidently be able to:

- thread a sewing machine and wind a bobbin.

- feed fabric through, sew in a straight line and turn corners.

- explore the range of features and stitches on the machine.

- sew different types of seams.

- Understand how to hem the edge of the cloth.

- apply a pocket and patches.
