What to expect...

The Beginners Sewing Course is the best session for complete beginners. You will learn a range of sewing techniques to build your confidence and help get you started. Throughout the day you will sew a small bag which encompasses the techniques you need to get you started. You will also be given handouts with detailed step by step instructions so after the course you will be able to refer back to them. You will pick up tips and tricks to make sewing both enjoyable and easy! All the materials you need will be provided and each step of the session will come with a handout which explains the techniques easily in a step-by-step, so you can refer back to it when practicing on your own.

We also offer this class as an Evening Session
