Beginners Sewing 1 - intro to using a sewing machine, Fabrications - Hackney

Description

Our ‘Beginners Sewing 1’ – Introduction To Using a Sewing Machine class has been developed to address the needs of those who have little or no experience of using a sewing machine. Through this class participants will learn not only basic sewing machine skills, but will develop the confidence to progress onto making things for themselves using a sewing machine.

In the afternoon, put your new found skills into practice to create a practical item (an applique cushion or lined tote style bag) in the “Creative Making on the Machine” class. We offer a discount when booking the full day.

On completion of this class participants will confidently be able to:

  • thread a sewing machine and wind a bobbin.
  • feed fabric through, sew in a straight line and turn corners.
  • explore the range of features and stitches on the machine.
  • sew different types of seams.
  • understand how to hem the edge of the cloth.
  • apply a pocket and patches.

Includes our ‘Learn to Sew’ textile handout (T-Towel) , other materials, use of sewing machines and refreshments.

We also offer a follow on class ‘Beginners Sewing 2’ – zips, buttonholes & bindings & make your own sewing roll, followed by an afternoon class ‘make your own simple & stylish skirt or shorts’ and offer a further ‘bundle discount’. Save £30*
