Getting started on a Sewing Machine

Getting started on a Sewing Machine


This is a day workshop for those with either a new machine (or new to you!) or those who are keen to start sewing but don’t have a machine yet.

We will look at the various stitches and feet and what they’re used for, maintenance, troubleshooting, blind hemming, needles, thread and tips for tricky fabrics.

There are machines available to use so you can really understand what to look for if you’re thinking of buying your own.

You will also make a couple of sewing related items during the day so you can consolidate what you’ve learnt.
