This Sewing course for beginners is designed to enable you to gain knowledge and confidence in your sewing skills and in using a sewing machine – all in an exciting, fun and informative way.
You will start with the basics of sewing – learning about different techniques, stitches, hemming, seams, zips etc to allow you to work on a project of your own – perhaps a bag, a cushion cover, apron or a simple garment for yourself or a child. The emphasis is on sewing skills rather than clothesmaking. You will also be taught how to use a sewing machine.
