About this course

This course will enable you to better understand your machine; why threading correctly is so important, understanding both top and bottom tensions, how each of the stitches works, zips, buttonholes, sewing with stretch fabrics, sizes and types of needles to use with each type of fabric, etc. The course will give you the confidence to use your machine more fully.

- use your machine safely
