Introduction to your Sewing Machine


Do you have a sewing machine but are unsure how to use it? Do you want to be like Kirstie Alsopp and enjoy preparing a hand-made Chirstmas, but are a bit nervous of your sewing machine?

This half day class will familiarise you with your sewing machine and give you the ideal introduction to using this fantastic tool, covering these basic points:

How to thread a sewing machine and change the needle
Identify the different parts of a sewing machine
Learn about seam allowance
Learn how to guide fabric
Learn how to cut material
Learn how to wind a bobbin and stitch seams

During the class you will make a tote bag which you can then take home with you. All the materials, including fabric, will be provided for you within the price of the course.
You must bring your own sewing machine to this class. Please remember to bring your power lead, foot pedal and manual (if you have one) and ensure that it is in working order. If it hasn't been used for a while (especially if, for example, it was gifted to you from your aunt's attic) I would advise having it serviced before the class to ensure problem-free sewing.
