About the Course

A beginner sewing course - bring your own sewing machine and learn how to set it up, wind a new bobbin, check the thread tension, straight stitch and then hand sew or applique decorations. Only 2 places per date to ensure that everyone gets the attention they need and come away happy that they can continue to sew independently. You will be making a cushion cover and will be guided through the day in a fun and creative way.

Courses are 4 hours in the day running from 10am to 2pm or can also be run as an evening course from 6:30pm to 10pm. The time difference is to allow a pause for lunch during the day.

Course materials are all included in the price, just let me know if you have a colour or pattern preference for your cushion and bring some lunch! Tea, coffee and biscuits all included though.

I am happy to lend my sewing machine if it’s needed so please let me know if you have a machine or not when booking.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Cushion material and inner, tea/coffee, biscuits

Want to review this course?

I really enjoyed my day with Emily learning to use a sewing machine and I'm so so chuffed with my beautiful cushion! A relaxed, informal class in friendly surroundings and Emily is so kind and patient. I treated myself as a birthday present and it was so lovely to spend a few hours doing something just for me. Would definitely recommend and I will be back!

I absolutely loved classes with Emily. She's such a lovely person and a great teacher. I came to the lesson scared of my machine but after the class I wasn't scared any more. I highly recommend Emily to everyone who would like to learn sewing!
