Event description

Description

This is an intermediate class for those who want to start from the beginning and learn to sew and make something from a paper pattern. The day is held in the beautiful surroundings of The Cart Shed, Shenley Church End, Milton Keynes, a great venue with lots of space and light.

You should have some knowledge and experience of sewing and understand how to use your sewing machine. You may have attended one of my beginners sewing machine classes.

During the day, I will explain what the info on a paper pattern means and how to interpret it. I will teach you how to lay your paper pattern out, cut it out and then guide you through every stage till you complete your finished sewn garment.

I provide the pattern which will be this one or something similar. You can create any of the garments included in the pattern. I chhose the pattern so I know it's achievable for beginners and in a day.


PLEASE NOTE

You will need to buy fabric to make your item. Once I know what item you are making will tell you how much fabric to buy.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING

Please bring a pencil, notebook, sewing kit ie needles, pins, tape measure, thread to match your fabric and thread for tacking, sharp scissors (a small pair and a large pair for cutting out your fabric) and your sewing machine.

PLEASE NOTE if your sewing machine is older than a year it will need to be PAT tested so we know it's electrically safe to use in a public building. Please contact me if you need any more info about this.

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the workshop.There is a supermarket, Subway and cafe about 10 mins walk (5 mins drive) away if you wish to purchase your lunch or you might want to bring a packed lunch with you.

Here is some of the feedback I have recieved from my six week sewing course

I am attending the beginners learn to sew with a machine class that Steph runs. It is fantastic and I highly recommend it. After three weeks of this class I am able to sew a drawstring bag, a reversible tote bag and a cushion cover with button fastening. I never thought I would be able to do that! After three years of school needlework lessons I couldn't make anything!! Steph breaks everything down into simple steps and is so relaxed and patient that even a complete beginner like me can do it! I can't wait for the next lesson. Diane

Steph is a great teacher , she gives you lots of practical and hands on activities where you actually produce something creative at the end of it ! Through her sewing classes she has really inspired me to learn more. Steph’s own designs are fun, colourful and modern, sometimes thought provoking. She likes to move with the times but her designs remain true to her style. Jenni
