Sewing Machines can appear a bit frightening at first. but this beginners sewing lesson is an easy introduction to sewing. It will de-mystify the sewing machine so you can be confident when using it. This starter class will get you going to learn some foundation sewing techniques. Whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects, 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 cut fabric.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sewing Machine Confidence are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
