At my relaxed and fun sewing course you will learn at your own pace while working on projects of your own choice. The classes are very small, never more than 4 students, which allows me lots of one-to-one time with everyone.
At the first class I will help you choose a good beginners project and fabric to go with it to work on during the course, so you don't need to bring anything for the first class of the course. But do have a look around for patterns to give you an idea of what kind of garment you would like to make. I recommend to have a look at the beautiful Splendid Stitch online shop for ideas of patterns and fabrics.
In 6 weeks you will:
*Learn how to thread the machine and about its parts.
*Learn about different seams and stitches
*Learn about seam finishings and stay stitching
*Learn how to do a zip, buttonhole and to hand stitch on a button.
*Learn how to do gathers, pleats and darts.
*Learn how to read and understand sewing pattern. (both commercial and independent ones)
*Learn how to choose the right fabric for your project.
*Make a garment from a pattern.
*And so many, many more things.
I have all tools you will need for the course and sewing machines that you can borrow for the course. If you want to bring your own sewing machine you are more than welcome. You just have to buy your own fabric for your project. You don't need this for the first class and I will teach you how to choose the right fabric for your project at the first lesson.
If you have any questions about this course get in touch or book your space via the easy and secure booking form.
Hope to see you in class soon.
