About this event

***Where all equipment would usually be provided, Covid means that we are not currently able to do this. You will use our sewing machines for the class, but you will need to bring your own basic sewing kit. If there is anything you need, you are welcome to buy from our shop.***

This course is designed for people who have no / very little experience of using a sewing machine, or who need to update their skills. It will cover how to thread up a machine, joining two pieces of fabric using different seams, turning corners and button holes. There will be the opportunity to have a “play”, experimenting with different stitches. It will allow you to familiarise yourself with the machines used by Happy Hare, enabling you to go on and enrol on one of our other sewing classes.

All materials will be provided.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and homemade cake are included.

Skill level: Beginner

Terms and conditions:

Our workshops are open to individuals aged fourteen and upwards. However, a responsible adult must remain on site at all time with minors.

Full payment is required at the time of booking to secure your place.

Any further details, along with anything you need to bring with you, will be sent out via email in advance of the scheduled date.
