This Beginners Sewing Course is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You'll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I'll explain what the different presser feet are for and you'll learn how to measure and cut fabric.
I've been sewing since I was a child and that's a lot of years experience. During that time, I've made every mistake in the book and learnt how to avoid them. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips. I wish I'd known all this stuff when I started to sew.
What will I learn?
How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
How to wind bobbins and how to thread a sewing machine
Understand the importance of correct thread tension
How to sew perfect straight lines, smooth curves and turn corners
Learn three different seam types and when to use them
How to take up a hem
Make machined buttonholes and how to sew in a zip
Sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own if you have one. If you are considering buying one, then I’m happy to give advice on what to look for. I recommend Pembertons, the specialist sewing machine dealer.
(You will need to bring your own fabric for your project – I’ll provide details when you book)
Additional Dates: 15 November 2018
