Is your sewing machine collecting dust in the back of a cupboard? Or brand new, still sitting in its box awaiting your attention? Perhaps you are hoping for a new sewing machine for your birthday or Christmas? No matter if you have never even switched a machine on or haven't sewn since school, this workshop is for you!
In this beginner's class you will be guided through the basics of your sewing machine: how to hem, add zips, topstitch and much more. You will learn how to draft a pattern, various techniques for cutting fabric and also constructing your projects. This course is designed to help build up your confidence in sewing, the use of your machine and generally help you to feel that you have the skills to continue sewing once you get home. Within this course you will make a lined tote bag, zippered pouch, cushion cover and, if time allows, bunting too.
Come and learn how to sew in a friendly and easy-going environment under the expert, patient eye of tutor Rebecca Barbour.
The Basic Sewing Kit
It would be helpful to have a basic sewing kit for this course, but not essential as there will be tools available for use.
- Fabric scissors
- Paper scissors
- Seam ripper
- Dressmaking pins
- Hand sewing needles
- Bobbins suitable for your machine
- Zipper Foot
- Temporary markers - this could be tailor's chalk, fade or wash-away pen
You will be required to bring your own sewing machine (which can be left securely overnight within the sewing room) allowing you to learn and become familiar with your own machine. However, there will also be a limited amount of extra machines available if you do not have your own - please enquire upon booking.
All fabric and all haberdashery is supplied and included in the price, though if you have a favourite fabric you wish to use, you are welcome to bring it along.
£120 Includes tea / coffee and all materials. Please bring a packed lunch each day.
