Intro to Sewing Course


This 4 week course is a perfect introduction to the world of sewing. You will learn how to use a sewing machine and put your skills into practice to complete some simple yet beautiful projects.

You will learn many new skills including:
• How to find your way around a sewing machine
• Different seam types and when to use them
• Inserting a zip
• Following a pattern
• Basic garment construction and dressmaking techniques

Practice straight and fancy stitching while completing a pretty and practical tote bag. You will then progress to home sewing techniques with a zipped and lined cosmetic purse. Finally, round off your knowledge with an introduction to dressmaking, completing a pretty camisole top.

Included in the price of the course are all practice fabric, threads, patterns, interlining for your make up purse and use of our Pfaff Ambition Sewing Machines. We also provide luxury coffee, tea and homemade cake.

Please bring these supplies with you (or you can purchase them from the shop when you attend):
Week One: Just yourself! You will be learning your way around the sewing machine.
Week Two: 70cm cotton fabric for your tote bag (or if you would like to use a contrast lining - 40cm outer fabric and 30cm lining fabric).
Week Three: Two fat quarters and a 10" zip for the makeup purse. Also 0.75m medium weight cotton fabric, 2m narrow ribbon, 1.5m bias binding (20mm wide) for your camisole top, which you will cut out in week three and complete in week 4.
