BEGINNERS in the true sense we start at ground zero, by teaching how to thread and use a sewing machine to explain the basic parts and functions.
We aim to have you on the sewing machine within 30 mins of starting the class working on a series of templates and some FUN exercises. In the first part of the day you make a very lovely drawstring bag and moving in the afternoon to create a lovely cushion, honing your sewing skills so you leave feeling ready and confident to sew solo.
