‘Beginners Sewing 1’ – introduction to using a sewing machine
October 31 @ 11:00 am - 5:30 pm£60
Our ‘Beginners Sewing 1’ – 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.
In the afternoon, put your new found skills into practise to create a practical item – project choices are an ‘envelope style’ cushion or lined tote style bag
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.
Includes: our ‘Learn to Sew’ textile handout (T-Towel) , other materials, use of sewing machines and tools.
We also offer a follow on class ‘Beginners Sewing 2’ – zips, buttonholes & bindings & make your own sewing roll, followed by an afternoon class ‘make your own simple & stylish skirt or shorts’. A discount is offered when you block book 1 & 2 together! Next date: Saturday 7th November.
Class Size: Now reduced to 4 participants to ensure social distancing.
