Learn to Sew One-Day Workshop 10am – 4.30pm

Learn to use a sewing machine then make a box top with your newfound skills!

Our Learn to Sew One-Day Workshop is pitched at absolute beginners. You will gain the confidence to begin making clothes, homewares and crafts on the sewing machine. Our March workshop is sold out. If you can’t wait for the May workshop why not enroll in our LEARN TO SEW SHORT COURSE  commencing Friday 13th March and running over 4 consecutive Fridays (10hrs total tuition)

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 our Learn to Sew One-Day Workshop (6.5 hrs duration) 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 and hems
  • to cut out and construct a simple box top
