Wednesdays 22nd April to 27th May
The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week afternoon course, so there's two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.
It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. 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.
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 and learnt how to avoid them. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I'd known all this stuff when I started to sew.
This is my most popular course and usually sells out in days.
