Sewing for Beginners

What will I learn?

Did you purchase your domestic sewing machine and then realise that you don't know how to use it? This course is for you.

We will study all the basics of sewing to build your confidence when using your sewing machine. You will complete several basic projects such as making a tote bag, a cushion cover and an apron, which will introduce you to:

  • choosing and cutting out fabric
  • construction techniques
  • types of seams
  • adding button holes and zips
  • adding embellishment You can then move on to looking at how to use shop bought patterns and even creating your own basic pattern, as well as how to make alterations to existing garments.

Students may bring their own sewing machine but it will have to be PAT tested on the first session

Students will be asked to supply their own materials
