For those who want to learn to sew, or those returning to sewing after a break. This class is suitable for complete beginners. All equipment, tools and materials will be provided. All you have to do is come along and have fun.
Instruction will be given via a Zoom class. You will need a computer, phone or tablet with wifi connection. You will need to have your own sewing machine and accompanying tools. Full prep list and instructions will be given via email prior to the start of the course. You can work at your own pace, watching the zoom call and then completing the steps covered after the call, but for a full teaching experience I'd suggest sewing along with the class, so that any obstacles can be negotiated together. You will receive a code allowing you to access a recording of the lesson.
Your beginners sewing kit will be sent out the week prior to the start of the course.
During this 4 week course you will learn to make a drawstring bag, a zip pouch and a simple, lined tote bag. A fabric pack will be provided in a selection of gorgeous, co-ordinated fabrics. Additional patterns and sew-along kits can be purchased so you can repeat the projects and continue your learning at home. You will get a 10% discount on all sewing kits throughout the duration of your course.
