I started to sew as a child and since then, I've made every mistake in the book. So benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I'd had someone to teach me all this stuff when I started!

Duration: 8 hours (4-week class @ 2 hours per week).

Who is this aimed at?
Absolute Beginners (if you've never used a sewing machine)

Novice sewists (if you've just recently learned but would like to know a bit more)

Lapsed Sewists (as a refresher if you've not sewn for a while and are a bit rusty).

Choose to make either

a lined reversible tote bag,
I-pad/tablet cover,
or a zipped make-up bag,
