How to use your sewing machine

Did you get a sewing machine for Christmas?
Do you have a sewing machine hiding in a cupboard and no idea how to use it?! Set it free and bring it along to this workshop. The class is aimed at beginners to find your way around a sewing machine including all the basics:

• Threading.
• Choosing the best thread.
• Changing needles / understanding different needle types & sizes.
• Different stitches and when & how to use them.
• Understanding thread tension.
• The basic habits of good sewing (including how to start & stop, sewing around curves and corners & sewing positions).
• Basic machine maintenance.
• Tips for good first projects to start making on your machine!

Class size limited to just 6 people meaning you will get plenty of help and support. Bring your own machine or use one of mine for an additional £5.

COST: £30 - A deposit of £10 secures your place with the balance payable 2 weeks before the workshop. Refunds are only available on cancellations if someone from the waiting list is able to take your place.

LOCATION: The Venue community centre in Stocksbridge. Fully accessible all on one level, lots of free parking 10 mins from M1.
