Learn to Sew One Day Workshop Sunday 23rd Sept
10am – 4.30pm (45 mins lunch)

An introductory one day intensive workshop for budding sewists wanting to make clothes, homewares and crafts using sewing patterns and a machine. This workshop combines the key elements of our Sewing Machine and Sewing Pattern Basics workshops and is pitched at absolute beginners.

If you already know your way around a sewing machine you might want to consider taking our Beyond Basics Learn to Sew Intensive and make a skirt for Winter.

If you:
– are considering buying a machine but want to give sewing a try first
– have recently purchased a sewing machine but haven’t taken it out of the box yet
– have a lovely old machine you’ve inherited or picked up second-hand, languishing in a cupboard
then this is the class for you!

In this five hour workshop you will learn:

  • about the various parts of your sewing machine and understand what they do
  • to set up your sewing machine and prepare the threads ready to start sewing
  • to stitch straight lines and curves and adjust stitch types for various uses
  • to sew and finish seams, facings and hems
  • to read and cut out a sewing pattern
  • to sew a simple item of clothing (top or pants)

We will provide: Sewing machines and all other equipment, some fabrics, snacks, beverages, handout notes and lots of very useful tips and tricks!

Bring along: Your own sewing machine if you would like to learn on that (we have plenty if you don’t own one). Your sewing kit if you have one. Woven cotton fabric for the pyjama pants. Your teacher will give you more info about what kind and how much fabric to buy closer to the date of the workshop.

Our small class numbers (maximum 6 students) allow your teacher Gaye to give each student lots of personalised attention.

Where: The Gaye Abandon Workroom, 122 Buckley St, Footscray.

When:  Sunday  23rd September 10am – 4.30pm (exclusive of 45 minute lunch break). Please select your session from the drop down menu.

Getting here: We are just near the corner of Buckley St and Victoria St in Footscray.
3 minutes walk from Middle Footscray Station. Street parking out front. See Contact Page for a map
