Adults Beginners to Sewing - Six Week Course
Course Length: 6 Weeks x 2hrs £190.00 including materials but not cushion pad. (We leave you to purchase this as there is a choice of feather or poly)
We know it is important to learn in a fun and relaxed way, so we will be teaching you these skills by creating a collection of really useful items; a reusable tote bag, a stylish envelope back cushion with piping, and a zip pouch with lining and sugar bag bottom. These items are designed to cover all the basic skills needed to venture into more complex projects.
What will I learn?
- fill a bobbin
- thread up a machine
- change the machine feet for different purposes
- pining paper patterns to fabric
- cutting out your fabric
- sew and neaten seams
- construct a double hem
- sewing a button hole and hand stitching on a button

- pressing techniques
- how to insert a zip
- using piping in a seam
- attaching a lining
There are follow-on 6 week courses on: ‘Beginners to Dressmaking’ or a series of shorter workshops which will help you to expand your skills if you wish to branch out into Soft Furnishings for example.

Due to current status with COVID-19 we can no longer provide all of the basic sewing kit for use during our classes and workshops. We will still provide the sewing machines and pressing areas but you will need to bring your own basic hand tools.
If you do not have these essentials, we have put together sewing kits with all of these items. Available in-store and online, in both adult and child versions.
