Adult Beginner Sewing (Machine) Course - 2 x 3hr classes - MARCH 13 and 20 - TWO SESSION TIMES AVAILABLE - 4 person maximum
Join me for a super fun and relaxing beginner sewing (machine) course, or the perfect refresher if you haven’t sewn for a while (perhaps since year 7 textiles).
Over 2 weeks you will learn how to use a sewing machine, including threading and setting it up, the best ways to feed fabric, and complete one main project- a tote bag.
Week One: This is all about introducing the sewing machine, getting started and sewing a couple of fun small projects like a pin cushion and a scrunchie (hair tie).
Week Two: We will cut and sew a simple tote bag, using french seams to encase the raw edges.
Over the two weeks you will also learn tips and tricks to cutting fabric, the importance of pressing during the sewing process and have lots of laughs and tea as well!
All materials for Week One are provided. We will then go through the materials required for Week 2 during the first class so you can buy all the things you need. We can supply tote bag supplies for an additional cost for Week Two if required.
Two different class times - either 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm on the following Saturdays:
13th March and 20th March
REQUIREMENTS: Closed foootwear for safety.
You may also bring your own machine if you would like to sew on it but I do have new machines in the studio to use. Machines must be Australian compliant (no adaptors please) and in good working order.
FOUR PERSON MAXIMUM FOR THIS CLASS. We also need a minimum of 2 students to run this class. Covid safe principles apply at our studio.
Please also feel welcome to send a teenager to this class(year 9/14 years), or contact me if you would like your own class with your daughter and a friend. This is also suitable for 10+ years as long as there is paying adult attending with them.
If sold out or you can’t attend on a Friday or Saturday, please email me (Liz) via firstname.lastname@example.org so I can connect you with any additional dates/ courses.
This class requires a minimum of 2 people to proceed and would be confirmed 5 days prior to commencement.
Class held at our Craft Studio - Studio D, 12 Denawen Ave, Castle Cove.
