If you have never used a sewing machine before or you're feeling a bit rusty, this is the class for you. We will familiarise you with the machine itself and teach you all the basic skills of machine sewing to give to the confidence to start simple projects on your own.

In this class you will cover the following techniques:

Thread up your machine
Wind on a bobbin
Understand stitch tension, length and width
Sew straight lines, corners and curves using a seam allowance
Cut from a pattern template
Finishing seams with a zig zag stitch
The art of pressing

During this two hour workshop you will use your new found skills to make an envelope cushion cover made from printed cotton fabric that is yours to keep and use forever! Once you have mastered these basic sewing skills you could enrol onto our Dressmaking Essentials class where you can learn further techniques that are unique to making your own clothes.

If you would like to learn to sew on your own machine, please get in touch so that we can notify the teacher. Please note we can only accept machines that are less than 10 years old.
