Are you wanting to get into machine sewing but don’t know where to start?
Are you a complete beginner? This is the perfect class for you!

On this 3 hour class you will learn all of the basics, from threading your machine and bobbin, putting in a new needle and the types of needle to use for different fabrics, to different types of stitches and changing their length and width.
You will then construct a tote shopping bag for you to take home!!
You will go away from this class feeling confident about using your machine!!

Requirements for this class:
Your sewing machine – basic sewing machine.
A simple sewing kit (scissors, hand sewing needles, pins, tape measure etc.) this is all available to purchase in store.
A piece of good quality fabric to make your bag (not too light weight fabric) at least 50 cm x 100 cm, this can be purchased from us.
Please let us know, when booking, what machine you are bringing along to the class.
