Saturday Beginners Sewing Course – January.
January 19, 2019 @ 11:00 am - January 26, 2019 @ 3:30 pmFree
Our Saturday Beginners Sewing course is 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 also runs on a Wednesday evening most months if you’d prefer that, but we are adding a couple of Saturday courses for this year, and this is the first!
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. Then after lunch learn to change a needle, check your tension, then move on to seams and hems, learning the most useful of each.
Week 2: 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.
£50 including materials and refreshments.
11am to 3.30pm, with half hour for lunch.
If you have your own machine we do advise you to bring it along, otherwise feel free to use ours.
