Learn how to use a Sewing Machine

Featured Image


A workshop specifically made for those who are completely new to sewing, or who would like a refresher course on modern machines. You will learn how to thread a machine, wind the bobbin and how to sew basic stitches.

We will talk about stitch width, length and tension.  By the end of the workshop you will learn how to sew a reversible tote bag.

Participants should bring along a sewing machine (in good working order) with a spare needle.

If you don’t have a sewing machine, enquire at time of booking and one maybe available to use.
