How will I be taught?

What do I need to bring with me?

Your sewing machine; there are some sewing machines at the Centre, but it is best that you get used to using your own. You will need to supply your own materials: please bring along scissors, tape measure, pins, pattern, fabric, threads, interfacings, etc.

What can I do next?
