The Beginners Sewing Course Weekend is a short introductory course to learn some foundation sewing skills.

  • How to use a sewing machine safely and confidently
  • How to wind bobbins and how to thread a sewing 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
  • How to finish the edges, and why you should
  • How to take up a hem
  • Make machined buttonholes and how to sew in a zip
  • Your choice of easy sewing projects. Make your choice of a reversible tote bag, I-pad/tablet cover, or zipped make-up bag, (You will need to bring your own fabric for your project – I’ll provide details when you book)

The Beginners Sewing Course Weekend 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 7 years old (and that’s a long time!) In that time, I’ve made every mistake in the book. Now you can benefit from my mistakes and learn to sew like a pro in just one weekend as I share my expert tips. I wish I’d known all this stuff when I was learning to sew.
