About Sewing Machine Skills – 2 day workshop 20th and 27th January

This is a two day workshop running from 12:00 – 3:00pm on Sunday 20th and 27th January 2019. When booking please ensure you are available to attend both days.

We have expanded our usual Sewing Machine Basics workshop to run for two days, to teach you even more skills and give you a more extensive understanding of the different techniques available on modern machines.

Sewing Machine Basics 1/2 – Sunday 20th January

The first part of this 2-part workshop will introduce you to a sewing machine and its various parts, going over what each of these do, and how it all works. We will show you how to thread your machine, how to fill your bobbin, change a needle, and there will be time for sewing practice and an opportunity to make a simple item with basic seams.

Sewing Machine Basics 2/2 – Sunday 27th January

Following on from part 1, we will build on your knowledge from the first class, looking at the different types of seams and finishing techniques, including how to insert a zip, make buttonholes and how to maintain your sewing machine and prevent costly service charges. There will also be an opportunity to make a simple item to take home with you using your new found skills!

This course is suitable for both complete beginners and for those with experience who’d like a refresher course or who are using a new, unfamiliar machine.

If you own a sewing machine then you are welcome to bring this along and work with this during the workshop, but we ask that you let us know prior to the workshop so that we can prepare for this. Otherwise we provide all sewing machines, equipment, tools, and materials.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sewing Machine Skills – 2 day workshop 20th and 27th January are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
