Makes a great Gift

We start right from scratch, familiarising you with the sewing machine itself, showing you how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine up and change the tension. Then we start building on your skills, you will cover a wide range of invaluable tips and techniques over the duration of the course - the breakdown is as follows:

Familiarise yourself with the sewing machine, learning how to sew straight lines, corners and curves using a seam allowance. Lay a paper pattern, pin and cut the fabric, learn how to press properly and finish seams with a zig zag to stop them from fraying. Using these skills, you will make a useful tote bag with front pocket and straps. After lunch you will cover a range of invaluable dressmaking techniques including tracing patterns, marking fabric, straight darts, new methods of finishing seams, hemming and how to insert an invisible zip.
