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.
– trouble shoot about common errors and being aware of them!
– sew different types of seams.
– Understand how to hem the edge of the cloth.
– apply a pocket and patches.
