Learn to use your sewing machine

This is the perfect sewing course for you if you are a complete beginner wishing to have a thorough introduction to using a sewing machine, learning different sewing techniques. This course consists of three two hour sessions  or a 6 hours day course, in which you will be taken from the very basics of setting up and threading a sewing machine to making a tote bag or storage basket, to a wash bag complete with zip and a cushion cover with buttons.

 

You can bring your sewing machine with you, or use one of ours.

You can use our materials for the first two projects but I would suggest you provide your own material and buttons for the cushion to match your decor.
