10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Suitable for: Beginners (adults & children aged 12+ if accompanied by an adult)
This Beginners Sewing Day is an easy introduction to sewing. It provides the starting point to learn some foundation sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learn 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.
Then there’s an easy sewing project to make so you can practice your new skills. (Projects may vary, but will be specified for each event.)
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. During the Beginners Sewing Day, I’ll be sharing lots of my tips. So you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro. I wish I’d known all this stuff when I was starting out.
