There is much joy and satisfaction that comes from being able to say “I made that” so what better way to get you started than with this great sewing course designed for beginners or as a refresher for those who have not sewn for many years.
5 Week Beginners Sewing for Fun
New Weekend Dates are now available – see our Weekend Class for more details
During this sewing course you will learn the sewing machine basics such as how to thread your machine, how to sew in a straight line and how to create a seam. There will be plenty of time for practice and step by step demonstrations throughout.
Next, you will complete two simple projects. You will be guided gently into the different stages of each one which will allow you to learn at your own pace. We allow two weeks for each project.
The two chosen projects are
- Tote Bag – During this project you will learn how to consruct a simple bag, with a lining, straps, pocket and a magnetic clasp. You will also discover how to create ‘ boxed’ corners on your bag and how to create the perfect topstitch for a professional finish.
- Cushion – During this workshop you will learn how to create a double hem, how to add lining panels and how to create fabulous ties to add a touch of class to your cushion.
On the 5 week course, you do not need to bring anything with you on the first session. However if you are considering the weekend workshop version of this course, please read the information on what to bring with you on the first day.
