With Catherine Carter
Run in conjunction with school holidays, this 2 class course over 2 days is the perfect introduction to the sewing machine for a young and budding sewer! These classes often sell out, so book your spot soon!
They will learn all the basics and get lots of sewing practice to build their confidence. This course covers learning about all the parts and features of a sewing machine, how to set up the machine, using different stitches and how to solve common sewing machine problems. Class sizes are kept small, for the best learning experience and a relaxed atmosphere – no more than 5 students in class!
They will start by stitching up some small projects like a pin cushion and drawstring bag. Sewing techniques that will be covered include hemming, finishing raw edges and cutting fabric, to create the final sewing project – a simple tote bag!
This workshop is eligible for the Creative Kids Voucher, we are a registered Provider.
This course is taught on Janome sewing machine model MW3018 (mechanical) or you are welcome to bring your own sewing machine.
