Our beginners sewing course is designed for people who have never used a sewing machine before or for those who need a good refresher after having been away from it for a long time.

A Sewing Weekend

Over one weekend or split into two

Are you excited to be back into sewing but need a bit of guidance? Join us for this two day sewing course which will let you choose your project, whether its some cushion sewing, bag making or dressmaking, we will be there to guide you, teach you and get you confidently sewing the weekend away. 

This weekend course would be the perfect opportunity for you and a friend or friends to get together for some social sewing with a teacher on hand in a great safe space. 

The lesson is a free-style lesson with everyone making something different, and what you will learn will depend on the project/pattern you have chosen.

Beginners - Using an over-locker can be daunting but during this workshop you will watch a series of demonstrations and be given lots of support to guide you towards leaving being confident using your over-locker.
