Learn the wonderful art of 'drawing' with your sewing machine. 

This is a fun way to become more creative with your machine; a great means of bringing some uniqueness to your makes.  This day-long course is ideal for anyone who has completed the Beginners Sewing weekend course or has some experience of sewing. 

This is a fun and creative class where you can be a bit imaginative and play around with ideas. There will also be some templates available for those who may not feel as confident making something up from scratch. You will get an opportunity to learn a variety of techniques under the expert and 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 
  • Threads 
  • Bobbins suitable for your machine 
  • Free Motion Embroidery or Darning foot - these are fairly common and usually come with most machines. Tutor will have a limited number available if you don't have this.
  • Temporary markers - this could be tailor's chalk, fade or wash-away pen 

Sewing Machine - You will be required to bring your own sewing machine 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.

£60    Includes tea / coffee and all materials. Please bring a packed lunch.
To book your place, request a booking form by email tel 01381 600354.
