Duration – 3 hours
Come along and get to grips with sewing machine basics. Learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin, sew basic machine stitches (straight stitch, back stitch, zig zag), sew French seams and simple trouble shooting tips. Put these skills into practice by making a simple tote bag. No need to bring anything – just come along and have a go.
This simple tote bag is perfect for light shopping, folders or newspapers and for folding up into your handbag for those spontaneous trips to the shops. You could also choose to make a smaller bag for a little person in your life – just the right size for carrying their favourite toy or random bits and bobs that they tend to collect! They would make gorgeous gifts too! Customise for male/female/young/old by just choosing the right fabric.
