Absolute Beginners

Learn to sew in one day

This one day quick start workshop is designed for those with little or no experience of sewing on a Machine.

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.
