Sewing – Learn to Know and Love your Sewing Machine

Course Details

This workshop is suitable for anyone who has an interest in sewing and would like to progress their skills, but finds that they are hindered by their lack of knowledge of their sewing machine functions. By the end of the workshop you will have gained experience and knowledge in the correct use of your sewing machine; what the different feet and attachments are for and how to use them, how to correctly wind the bobbin, thread the machine, set tensions and maintain your machine. You will be given information on threads, machine needles, fabric types etc to ensure trouble free sewing.

However, students should come along to the workshop already knowing how to thread their machine and bobbin. This will be followed by basic and more advanced sewing techniques to get you started which will be demonstrated by the Tutor. A very informative workshop in a friendly atmosphere where you will have some input to decide what you would like to learn to get you sewing. You will be taught through practical demonstration and hands on experience.
