Beginners Sewing Course XL - Wednesdays

About Beginners Sewing Course XL - Wednesdays

This introductory course 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. Why is it called ‘XL’? – because it’s an extended version of my classic ‘Beginners sewing course’. It has two additional projects to make. This extra practice gives you 50% more fun, and twice as much confidence. This course takes place over 6 weeks, 2.5 hours per week. For Adults (16 years +)

What will I learn?
How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
How to wind bobbins and thread a sewing machine
Understand the importance of correct thread tension
How to sew perfect straight lines, smooth curves and turn corners
Learn three different seam types and when to use them
How to take up hems
Make machined buttonholes and how to sew in a zip
How to make three great sewing projects to practice your new skills:
a lined reversible tote bag,
I-pad/tablet cover,
a zipped make-up bag,

With a small number of students, I’m able to personalise your tuition and you’ll benefit from lots of individual attention.
Who is the Beginners Sewing Course XL aimed at?
Absolute Beginners (if you’ve never used a sewing machine before)
Novice sewists (if you’ve recently learned and would like to know a bit more)
Lapsed sewists (as a refresher if you haven’t sewn for a while)
For Adults (16 years +)
