Description

Do you have a sewing machine you wish you knew how to use? Or ever wanted to learn to sew but not sure where to start, or know if you’re doing it right? Sewing is an epic skill to have up your sleeve whether its just to tailor your clothes for a more on point look or to finally tackle that Pinterest board full of ‘If only I could sew’ DIYs.

Bring your sewing machine (and any little bits that go with it) or borrow one of a friend,  aunty, nanna or whoever has one stashed away that they won’t miss, and I’ll take you through the basics of how to set up YOUR machine and how to use it. Forget trying to follow along on Youtube with people how have different machines from you and getting stuck. I’ll show you what you need to know get you started on your machine and start your first sewing project.

I’ll teach you how to wield the power of the sewing machine to make up this awesome minimalist pouch that can be used as a laptop sleeve (know your laptop dimensions before hand), fold over clutch, pencil/cord case or pouch for whatever it is you need to stash. You’ll the learn the basics of straight stitch, top stitching, inserting zippers, and for the speedy Gonzales of the bunch, how to add pockets and lining to up your sewing game. You’ll gain the confidence on the magic machine, and learn how to troubleshoot when you get stuck and make an awesome case as proof to your found skills. Ahhh the possibilities, let the DIY games begin!

About Ann-Maree Saver

I’ve been a maker since forever, spending many childhood afternoons mesmerised over DIY books and attempting to recreate them with whatever I could get my hands on. Fast forward another 20 years or so, I had a close call with a civil engineering degree before, saying f*k it and getting formally trained with a Diploma of Applied Fashion at TAFE and a Bachelor of Industrial Design at uni. Whilst I love working in the field, I also love teaching the skills that take mere ideas into reality, it’s like making magic right in front of your eyes!
