Event Details

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.

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: Sunday 3rd July.
