Learn to Sew - Adults & Children

If your New Years Resolution is - 
' to learn to sew'
I can help you.

If you have never used a sewing machine
Just bought or been given a sewing machine. 
Haven't done any sewing since school. 
Need a refresher. This is the class for you. 
I will take you through how to use your machine at your own pace.

Together we will cover all the basics like:
  • threading the machine & filling a bobbin
  • what the dials/buttons on the machine do
  • how to change a needle or a presser foot
  • how a machine makes a stitch
  • troubleshooting and more. 
After showing you each process, you will have a turn until you are happy. You will also sew samples to take home so that you have a reference to look back at. 
If you don't have a sewing machine I can teach you the same things on one of our machines. 

Learning to sew clothing for yourself is a long process that can't be achieved in 1 or 2 lessons but there are many smaller items you can make even in your first lesson that will set you on the road to sewing success.
