Machine Sewing for Beginners Workshop

About the course

Have your own sewing machine but need to get to grips with what it can do and how you carry out some basic skills?

This full day workshop has been specifically designed as an introduction to machine sewing. We deliver this workshop at beginner level so our students can experience and gain confidence with a range of techniques and skills for completing sewing projects.

You will spend part of the morning getting to know your sewing machine and workspace in readiness for completing your first sewing project of the day – a fabulously fun cushion cover. This will include drawing a pattern, sewing seams, inserting a zip and sewing on a button.

During the second part of the day you will design and sew a beautifully useful apron which includes sewing a hemline, using bias binding and finishing off seams.
