This Beginners Sewing Day will teach you how to use a sewing machine, and some basic sewing skills. And you’ll learn how to make a lovely patchwork cushion.

What’s covered in the Beginners Sewing Day:

-How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
-How to wind bobbins and thread up the machine
-Understand the importance of correct thread tension
-How to sew perfect straight lines, smooth curves and turn corners
-Take up hems
-Project. Make a lovely patchwork cushion. (You will need to bring your own fabric for your project – I’ll provide details when you book)

This Beginners Sewing Day is an easy introduction to sewing. 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, 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.

Then there’s a lovely project to make so you can show your family ‘Look what I made!’

I’ve been sewing since I was a child and that’s a lot of years experience. During that time, I’ve made every mistake in the book. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro.

Sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own if you have one. But if you are considering buying one, then I’m happy to give advice on what to look for. I recommend Pembertons, the specialist sewing machine dealer.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Beginners Sewing Day are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
