Beginners Sewing Machine
Have you got a new machine and don’t know how to use it, or maybe you’re dusting off an old one, or even that machine still in its box? Then come and join one of our workshops where we will guide you through your machine, from plugging it in, winding the bobbin, threading the needle, exploring different stitches and even making a small item!
New Class Available Soon
English Paper Piecing (EPP) For Beginners
This is a traditional hand sewing craft that will introduce you to the skills of quilting. We will explain how to cut shapes to the correct size, allow for seam allowances and the correct order to sew. You will create a traditional ‘hexie’ flower and use this to create your own needle case to store your new crafts accessories. All materials provided plus tea, coffee and cake.
Cost per class £20
Saturday 3rd August 9:30am – 12pm
Introduction to Free Motion Embroidery
We would like to introduce you to this beautiful way of sewing by exploring the skills of your own sewing machine (not an embroidery machine). You will learn how to ‘draw’ with your machine as we learn different techniques to build a design for a special occasion card.
We will provide all fabrics and some threads, tea, coffee and cake. You will need to bring your own sewing machine which either has an embroidery plate or ability to lower the feed dogs, a free motion or embroidery foot and a selection of threads suitable to use on your machine (please call us if you need any further information)
