Learn how to use a sewing machine and make an easy sewing project in just a few hours.
This fun class is a quick and 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, learn about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what some of the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.
Then there’s an easy sewing project to make so you can practice your new skills. (Projects may vary, but will be specified for each event.)
Who is this aimed at? Adult Beginners (if you’ve not used a sewing machine before).
