Who is it for?

This course is for complete beginners who would like to know how to use a sewing machine and make some projects whilst learning new skills. Always wanted to sew but not sure where to start? Then this is the course for you.

What does the course involve?

This course is for those who are complete beginners or those who wish to learn the basics of using a sewing machine. We will start from the very beginning and learn how to thread a sewing machine, wind on the bobbin. Using a pattern you will make a tote bag. Then move onto making a cushion with a zip, followed by a project involving a button hole.

From there we will progress on to looking at sewing button holes, inserting zips, different seam finishes and how each of these techniques can be applied to a project to reinforce the process. You will be expected to provide fabric for these projects, this will be explained in the first session. The course is taught in our fashion studios where we have industrial and domestic sewing machines for you to use.

Additional costs

You will have to provide your own materials and fabric.
