Beginners Sewing Class

Get to grips with sewing machine basics in this 3 hour beginners sewing class.

Learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, sew basic machine stitches (straight stitch, back stitch, zig zag) and simple trouble shooting tips. Put these skills into practice by making an envelope cushion cover.

This class is suitable for complete beginners or those that are in need of a refresher.

This class will hopefully give you the confidence that you need to go on and make some further more challenging projects – or if not, hundreds of cushion covers!!!!

  • Janome sewing machines and basic sewing tools provided to use
  • A selection of fabrics and threads will be available for you to choose from for the project. If you would prefer to bring your own fabric then please see details below

“A cushion cover is the perfect project for either a complete beginner sewist or someone looking to refresh their skills. Learn the basic stitches  straight lines and turning corners – core skills for progressing onto more challenging projects. Gain confidence using a sewing machine – that’s what it’s all about. You can also really change the look and feel of a room quite quickly by refreshing cushion covers so come along and learn the skills and then get making!!”
