About Craft Sewing Course

Wednesday 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th June

Craft Sewing Course is a fun and social course to learn or brush up your sewing skills. This 4-week course gives you four easy sewing projects: a handy tote shopper, a patchwork cushion, a tablet or I-pad cover, and a zipped make up bag.

What’s covered:
I’ll help you get to grips with using a sewing machine if you’ve forgotten
Learn how to neaten up your sewing
Lots of tips for measuring, cutting and sewing your projects
Projects. The tote bag is lined and reversible, and folds up into a carry case, perfect for popping in your handbag. The patchwork cushion front is in four sections with topstitching to highlight the panels. It has a simple envelope back and is made from 2 Fat Quarters. Finally, the zipped make-up bag is lined, and has an exposed zip. This technique is useful to know as it’s common in bag-making. You will need to bring your own fabric for your projects – I’ll provide details when you book.
This Craft Sewing Course is a good starting point to learn foundation sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or further craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while.

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