Complete Beginners Workshop

23rd May
Never used a sewing machine before? Or just a bit rusty and keen to get back on that pedal? Then this class is for you!

During this 3-hour beginner’s workshop you will learn to use a sewing machine and you'll complete a simple textile project while you pick up heaps of new skills! Take your pick from a selection of vintage, thrifted and new fabrics from my fabric stash to make a pretty cushion cover to take home at the end of class.
You will learn how to do all these things...
· 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 lovely straight lines & how to get to grips with back stitching
· How to adjust stitch length
· How to stitch a simple hem
· Basic pinning, cutting & ironing techniques

Material included. Fabric, thread & a 30cm feather filled cushion pad. You will also get a copy of the pattern so you can make cushions to your hearts content at home with your new found skills. Basic tools of the trade are also provided and the use of our Brother Sewing machines. So all you have to do is show up!

Classes are small, maximum class number is 6 guests,to ensure you get the personal tuition you need to help with your project and you get the best out of each workshop we host.
