About this event

Would you love to learn how to use a sewing machine and start making your own clothes and accessories?

Want to alter, or make gorgeous things for your home or friends?

Then this is the perfect starter course for you. You will learn to sew on a machine from scratch in a beautiful fashion design studio in Belfast, taught by studio owner MaryRose McGrath.

She is a womanswear designer with 25 years in the fashion industry, who has designed for many well known high street womanswear brands in London such as Oasis, M&S, Debenhams, Arcadia, House Of Fraser & more.

You will be taught how to sew from scratch -  MaryRose de-mystify all the dials, the switches and the confusing numbers on the sewing machine -  perfect for absolute beginners and those who have not sewn for years.

The course includes:

6 HOURS OF IN DEPTH SEWING TUITION IN A WORKING FASHION STUDIO, OVER 2 EVENINGS:

1. Get to know a sewing machine: How to set it up, thread the machine, wind the bobbin, use the dials, understand how the machine works. You are also shown the other tools of the trade and what kit you will need to sew.

2. Learn to stitch correctly & with precision: Sew staight lines, sew curves, understand seam allowances and how to sew fabrics together using the correct techniques.

3. Learn how to read a  paper sewing pattern: grainline explained, instructions, seam allowance variations

4. How to cut fabric like a pro - scissor cutting techniques

5. Make your own designer cushion in class two -  a fab starter project.

Who is the course suitable for?

This course is perfect for absolute beginners who have never used a sewing machine before, do not know how to cut or pin fabrics, do not understand seam allowances and have never sewn before. It is also fantastic for those who have not sewn in years and need a refresher course.

Classes are for age 18+. Young sewers age 12+ can attend a course if they are accompanied by a parent / guardian who is also booked on the course.

Do I need to bring a sewing machine with me?

No need - we supply all machines and equipment you will need.

* Please do not bring your machine to class - as students all learn on our studio machines*.

How many students are in the class?

6 students maximum are in the class.

We specifically keep classes small to ensure you get loads of one to one tuition with your tutor. MaryRose will be by your side guiding you in your techniques and helping you to correct any issues as the course progresses.

The course includes 6 hours of in depth teaching, the use of all professional studio machinery and equipment, your sewing pattern to take away &  relevant technical handouts.

Any other important information I should know before booking?

PLEASE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BOOKING BELOW :

1. IMPORTANT! Please make sure you can attend the first evening class, as it's the time when we learn all about the machine and how to use it - this is vital to your success in the course. We do not accept anyone into second class if the first class has not been attended.

2. There is so much to learn in each class - late arrivals disrupt all other students attending and the tutor. Late arrivals of 15 minutes or more late are not accepted into class as it is impossible to recap after this time.

There is parking at Conway Mill, and it is easy to find - only a couple of minutes from Belfast city centre.

* Falls rd, West Belfast - look for Falls Leisure centre - then look for next building which is the Jobs & Benefits Centre - turn at Benefits centre into Conway St - Mill is large building on the right. Entrance is through the gates - wait on ground floor for your tutor*

3. We do not split classes between two people- one person attends both classes.

4. Should you find you can not make the course ( due to any reason including personal circumstances / illness / covid / covid isolation / other) you can transfer the name so someone else attends in your place. To transfer a name, e mail us in advance on info@maryrosemcgrath.com.

5. Due to the specific nature of this class, we do not offer refunds, nor are we able to give a new free space in another beginner course at a later date if you are not able to attend the course booked for any reason including those noted above.(To explain - you are booking the same sort of ticket as cinemas, theatres & concert venues etc).

6. The studio is closed before class and doors open at 6.15pm. MaryRose will collect all students from Conway Mill reception on the ground floor at 6.10 pm and will take you to the studio on the second floor.( Please do not try and find the studio as you will get lost - the mill is huge!!)
