Our 4 week Beginners Sewing course is now running at Tod College! It’s ideal to get you started. We can teach you all the basics including an understanding of your sewing machine, accurate stitching and basic problem solving (or avoiding!) . The course runs on a Wednesday evening most months, running from 6.30-8.30pm and lasts for 4 weeks.
We will cover:
Week 1: Learn to use your sewing machine, tips and tricks for easier faff free sewing, also practice how to sew in a straight line, sew curves and corner with ease.
Week 2: Learn to change a needle, check your tension, then move on to seams and hems, learning the most useful of each.
Weeks 3 & 4: Make a simple item to practice and consolidate the skills you’ve learnt. Fabric and patterns/instructions all provided, or feel free to bring your own.
£60 including materials. If you pay the £20 deposit to book please pay the balance on the first session of the course. If you wish to spread payments out over a longer period please contact us to arrange. Places are limited to 10.
If you have your own machine we do advise you to bring it along, otherwise we can provide one for a small charge. Everything else can be provided as needed and included in the cost, however if you do have your own scissors, tape measure pins etc we do advise you to bring them along as equipment is limited and would need to be shared. The college provide a tea trolley at a cost of £1 per person per session, or feel free to bring your own drink with you!
