Join our two-day Sewing Machine Basics workshop on Saturday 22nd and 29th June and gain some amazing practical skills in basic sewing machine use which can be used to make and repair your own clothing and textile pieces!
The first part of this 2-part workshop will introduce you to a sewing machine and its various parts, going over what each of these do, and how it all works. We will show you how to thread your machine, how to fill your bobbin, change a needle, and there will be time for sewing practice and an opportunity to make a simple item with basic seams.
Following on from day one, we will build on your knowledge from the first class, looking at the different types of seams and finishing techniques, including how to insert a zip, make buttonholes and how to maintain your sewing machine and prevent costly service charges. You'll then have the opportunity to make another item to take home with you using your new found skills!
This course is suitable for both complete beginners and for those with experience who’d like a refresher course or who are using a new, unfamiliar machine.
