Beginners Sewing Course XL is an introductory course to learn some foundation sewing skills. This 6-week course gives you three great beginner sewing projects.

What’s covered:
How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
Wind bobbins and thread up the machine
Understand the importance of correct thread tension
How to sew perfect straight lines, smooth curves and turn corners
Learn three different seam types and when to use them
Take up hems
Make machined buttonholes and insert a zip
Projects. Three lovely sewing projects to practise your new skills. Make a reversible tote bag, an I-pad/tablet cover, and zipped make-up bag, (You will need to bring your own fabric for your projects – I’ll provide details when you book)

This Beginners Sewing Course XL 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.

I’ve been sewing since I was a child and that’s a lot of years experience. During that time, I’ve made every mistake in the book. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro as I share my expert tips.

Sewing machines are provided or you can bring your own if you have one. If you are considering buying one, then I’m happy to give advice on what to look for. I recommend Pembertons, the specialist sewing machine dealer.
