An easy introduction to sewing for beginners, or a refresher if you've got rusty.
This Beginners Sewing Day will teach you how to use a sewing machine, and some basic sewing skills.It provides the starting point to learn some foundation sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects.
You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, wind bobbins and thread the machine. You'll get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric as there's a lovely project to practise your new skills.
Choose from a useful Tote Bag or a patchwork cushion. (You'll need to bring some fabric; I'll tell you what you need when you book)
