Sewing for Beginners (Daytime)


This class is perfect for the beginner or those in need of a refresher course in sewing. Our one day class is a good introduction to the topic but those wishing to study more in depth should take a look at our Sewing for Beginners 5-week evening class.

Under the care of your tutor, you will start with learning to thread your sewing machine and how to control it. Once everyone is feeling more confident, we will cover basic tasks like sewing in a straight line, turning over a hem, sandwiching fabrics together, how to pin and some of the language you might come across in your new hobby.

We plan to tackle a simple project for you to take home, such as a cushion cover. By the end of the course, you should have mastered the basics of machine sewing.

The course starts at 10am and finishes around 3pm.

You need not bring anything with you-we provide all of the materials, notions and sewing machines. If you would like to bring your sewing machine though, you are very welcome.

This class is ideal for a complete beginner or those in need of a refresher course.
