This is a very popular workshop for those who have never sewn before or at least not for a very long time.
Drawstring Bag (Morning)
You will learn how to thread a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, sew straight seams and sewing machine basics.
In the morning, we will be making a cute drawstring bag to keep your sewing notions in. It will have a casing, buttunholes for openings and fancy French seams.
Zipper Purse (Afternoon)
This module complements the morning module. You will be making a gorgeous zippered pouch or clutch. Learn how to sew in a zipper and fully line your purse with hidden seams.
Make one for yourself to keep your phone, keys, a lip gloss and some change, then go home and make many more and various sizes to store your toiletries, receipts, business cards, special treats, pens and pencils, or to give as a gift with a nice tube of hand cream inside.
Sewing techniques you will learn during the day
What is provided?
We can also provide a sewing machine free of charge (just select the option at the time of booking) for your use during the workshop, if you cannot bring your own.
I learnt the basics of how to get a machine loaded & ready to go, different types of stitching, and various seams. I had a really good day and was proud of what I made! I just hope to get a machine & get practicing soon whilst it's fresh :-)
I had a wonderful time learning how to sew and different sewing technics. I have already made two more zipper bags and can't wait to get stuck into more sewing projects. I would highly recommend this class.
Excellent beginners class to learn how to set up the sewing machine and practice it's functionalities. Got to put it all to use when we made the 2 crafts. Very patient instructor as well!
