A fantastic wee course for those who are new to sewing, scared or a little rusty.  You’ll learn to sew in a relaxed atmosphere, where it’s okay to make mistakes! We’ll show you how to fix them. You’ll learn lots of tips and tricks, that we’ve picked up over the years, helping you to find your own sewing style.  Each week you’ll complete a project whilst learning new techniques.  

  • Tote Bag french seams.  Getting used to handling the fabric in the machine, speed and tips to sew in a straight line, as well as securing seams.

This is NOT a lesson on how a sewing machine works, threading or its various stitches.  For that we offer a ‘Love Your Machine’ session, which is a 1-2-1 with your own sewing machine, you would contact us directly to arrange a date and time. You DO NOT need to know anything of this to join in the Beginners Classes, as all the threading and setting of the machine will be done for you, so you can just get on with sewing!

*All materials provided, including use of sewing machines & equipment.
