In this class you will be able to work on the project of your choice at whatever level of experience you are. If you are an absolute beginner we will show you how to  set up and use a sewing machine or overlocker through to making a simple item of your choice using a commercial paper pattern.

If you wish to learn specifically using your own overlocker, setting up, threading etc then  please just inform us at the time of booking. 

You are welcome to bring any project along that you may want to start with on your first lesson. It could be anything that you feel would be a good starting project, eg bunting, small bags, or maybe simple dressmaking such as a top,  plain skirt or PJ Bottoms. 

If you are a more confident sewer you will be able to learn more advanced skills and techniques as your sewing skills progress.  You will be shown how to work with a variety of different fabrics and learn how to handle some of their different properties. With the expertise and skills of our fabulous teachers anything is achievable.
