Beginners Sewing Course XL

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Thursday 9 January - Thursday 13 February
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course, so there’s two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.

It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

Kids sewing class - Owl Toys

Thursday 13 February
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Owl toys are easy sewing projects for children aged 8-12. And they are fun to do. They are made from small amounts of fabric, felt and buttons, and offer lots of opportunities  to develop kids craft skills.

Who is this aimed at?

Children must already have done an introductory sewing class to learn how to use a sewing machine. Ideally they will have completed the Kids Sewing Course Level 1 or the Kids Introductory Sewing Class, and be confident using a machine.

What will my child learn?

  • cutting fabrics using a pattern,
  • further sewing practice
  • working with felt
  • sewing on buttons
  • how to stuff soft toys

Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children.  It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.
