New year, new hobby

Beginners Sewing Machine Workshops

Never used a sewing machine before? Or just a bit rusty and keen to get back on that pedal? This workshop is for you!!

During the workshop, you will learn how to use a sewing machine and complete a simple textile project as you learn plenty of new skills.  Take your pick from a selection of fabrics to make a pretty cushion cover to take home at the end of your class.

You will learn all of the following:
How to thread a machine
How to change a needle
How to use the presser foot
How to fill and load the bobbin
How to stitch in a straight line
How to adjust stitch length and style
How to stitch a simple hem
How to sew a button hole
Basic sewing techniques such as cutting out, pinning, ironing and sewing on a button
Introduction to over-locking


Material, thread and button included (unless you wish to use your own) and use of equipment.  Why not bring along your own machine if you have one.

Dates and times to suit you.
One to one tuition from a qualified City and Guilds trained tutor (with the patience of a saint).
Cushion can be made in one lesson, or if you want to take your time, further workshops can be arranged.
